What people are saying ...
I hired Flamenco & Sol for my mom's 60th Birthday Party. I could not be happier with how everything turned out. She was elated and everyone enjoyed their performance. They were all extremely talented, very professional, and very accommodating. After the performance they were more than willing to take photos and talk to everyone. Very friendly group of people. I would definitely hire them again and highly recommend to anyone looking to add some talent and fun to an event.

Glenda Sol Koeraus, “La Argentinita”, is a Buenos Aires-born flamenco dancer who over the past decade has established herself as one of the leading flamenco dancers/choreographers in New York. A scholarship recipient of the Jerome Foundation's Travel and Study Grant and the Jacob’s Pillow Cultural Traditions program, Sol has been described by the New York Times as “seductively aggressive” and by Theater Online as “a master of her craft.” She is without doubt one of the few U.S.- based flamenco artists to posses a distinctive vision and voice in an art form still dominated by Spanish-based artists, despite its increasing global appeal.
Sol has appeared at illustrious venues such as Lincoln Center, Town Hall, Symphony Space, and The Joyce Theater. She has been featured in the pre-production of Tony Award-winning Christopher Gatelli’s In Your Arms (Powerhouse Theater), Zorro! The Musical (Alliance Theater, GA), Carmen & Traviata (Metropolitan Opera) Choreographer and Solo Dancer for Portland Opera's production of Carmen (Keller Auditorium).
In addition to performing, Sol is an accomplished teacher, having traveled the country giving both master classes as well as residencies with Young Audiences, Carlota Santana Flamenco Vivo and Alvin Ailey.
Whether teaching, dancing, singing or directing, Sol stays very close to the roots of flamenco, never neglecting the cante jondo (deep song) aspect of the art, which also keeps her close to her native Argentina, a land where the accent of the mate amargo (bitter mate) still rules supreme.
