The Carmonas have appeared in Madrid, Sevilla, Valencia, Alicante, and Huelva, as well as San Francisco, New York, Vancouver, B.C., Portland, Tampa, and Los Angeles. As founders of Flamenco Arts Northwest (FANW) In 1996, Marcos and Rubina Carmona have taught and nurtured the flamenco arts in the Pacific Northwest, offering year-round classes in dance, guitar, song, and cajon (the Peruvian box-drum mastered and played by their son David). They have presented numerous perfomances, showcasing their advanced students, and yearly dance workshops with invited guest teachers from throughout the U.S. and Spain.
Known as one of the West Coast's foremost female flamenco dancers Ana Montes has been acclaimed as powerful and charismatic, a monster with rhythm, moving with grace and elegance while at the same time containing that tension and passion which makes flamenco so exciting. Dancing since the age of 9, and trained in classical ballet, she began her flamenco studies in Sevilla, Spain, continued with Angelita Vargas and Jose Galvan, and in Madrid at the famous dance studio Amor de Dios with many of the most respected flamenco teachers and artists including El Ciro, La Tati, El Guito and Merche Esmeralda. She also studied the Spanish folkdance "Jota Aragonesa" with the famous Pedro Azorin.
She danced professionally in Spain, Europe and Mexico for 7 years, dancing with the Ballet Espanol del Camborio, the Ballet Espanol de Fernando Romero, and El Burrero Pena Flamenca in Madrid. Ana performs and teaches in Seattle, and is artistic director of her performing student group Flamenco Danzarte.
