Elegant! Her talent lies in the expressions on her face which speak, feel and convey what she dances. Marisa is a dancer who leaves a strong imprint on her audience.

Rafael Peral is one of those dancers who does not leave anybody indifferent. He has a stage personality that marks his terrain, and he moves like a fish in water.

The dancing of Marisa Adame is classical dance; it is full of well-balanced and impeccable resourcefulness, executed with a grace and style all her own
that is unique and very special. Rafael’s style is wide-ranging. He has a very refined technique, especially when it comes to his footwork and a profound sense
of the beat of the music, reaching moments of great intense agility.

The purest styles of flamenco — romances (ballads), martinetes, fandangos and soleares — are brought into the forefront in a performance made up of a cast of distinguished artists. Song (cante), dance (baile), guitar (guitarra) and percussion (percusión) come together on stage in a most natural fashion, while they convey a genuine love for this art form and take the audience on a simple and unswerving journey of feelings, sensations and emotions.
