"Clarita was stunning. she had poise, control and rhythm. The
last of these attributes was what made the performance exceptional.
Clarita constantly moved and twirled with elegant grace, but snapped with
clockwork precision on the beats.
Maybe it wasn't so much that Clarita was
always with the music as the music was always with her."
"Clarita also provided the most riveting dance solo, with
wind swept flute seeming to swirl around her
eloquently drifting arms and hands."
Los Angeles Times
"The afternoon belonged to Clarita -- sweetly buoyant in
Jose Greco's "Panaderos a la Flamenco", elegantly virtuosic
in the sustained footwork of the "Sarasate's Zapateado",
Boldly playful in the dramatic contrast of Alegrias."
Los Angeles Times
"Watching Clarita dance reminded me
of a mid western
storm. Her feet were like lightning striking the earth. The
performance was exciting, romantic, dramatic and as classic as love."
Santa Monica Messenger
"We enjoyed the talented group's graceful and
beautiful dance interpretations. The ample repertoire introduced many of us to
a varied array of regional Spanish dances. We believe expressions
such as yours bridges cultural differences and educates us in cultural
diversity, we recognize your contribution to these goals. We look
forward to future presentations by Arte Flamenco for the enjoyment
and continued learning experience of our community.
Well done, Clarita!"

" ...the auditorium was full and the audience loved
providing the company with a much deserved standing ovation. The
dancers were a joy to behold and a pleasure to work with backstage."

Everett Performing Arts Center
"The performance itself went off flawlessly. The musicians alone
were worth the price of admission and could probably hold their
own concert. The costumes were beautiful and Clarita and her
dance troupe were fantastic. They are talented artists and exciting
performers. I would not hesitate to book them again and encourage
others to schedule them as well."
Community Ctr. for the Performing Arts
"Everyone is still raving about the splendid program. The company is
outstanding and Clarita is magnificent. This was the first time I have
seen a standing ovation in the middle of the first half of a show -- she
richly deserved it."
