Flamenco dancer and choreographer, Rosario Toledo has managed put herself at the top of the flamenco dance scene due to her creativity and her art to transmit to the viewer the essence of what surrounds us. Street. Light. The sensuality. The mischief. Cadiz, salted and seafaring. The grace, the cove, the air of the bay. Wild female She received his Bachelor’s degree in Spanish Dance from the Superior Conservatory of Dance in Seville and began her professional career with her teacher Charo Cruz. “By Law of Life” was the first show that represented and soon after joined the company of Manuela Carrasco and Antonio El Pipa. Intuitive, fresh, expressive, visceral, earthly. After those first steps, Rosario begins to act in recognized tablaos like “The Cordobes” in Barcelona or “Los Gallos” in Seville. She also collaborates as a guest artist in a show with figures such as Javier Latorre, Javier Barón, Antonio Canales, Israel Galván, Joaquín Grilo, Miguel Poveda, Arcángel, Dorantes and José Antonio Rodríguez, among others. In addition, she also acts as soloist in the show “From Cadiz to Cuba, the Sea of Flamenco” with Mario Maya. The primitive dance and the vanguard. Brave, fresh, versatile. Instinct, intuition, the sixth sense. What hurts. Life itself. The influence and experience gained with those great masters have impregnated Rosario with a personal vision of flamenco dance. She has a deep and conceptual dance, full of ideas. But she keep her feet on the ground, clinging to nature and going outside. The game, the commotion, the explosion. The perspective. Root and branch. The Polyhedral Flamenco. To play, to go, to escape … Having reached the technical and artistic maturity, Rosario delves into the development of her own projects developed in her own company. Today she continues to reap enormous successes from critics and audiences and has become an essential flamenco dancer within the current flamenco scene.
