Artist's Statement

Flamenco has shaped my life’s history. It is my great passion. It excites my mind, it enraptures my soul and comforts my spirit. Through flamenco I find truth, beauty and goodness. Good flamenco is always stirring to the listener who hears with their heart. It communicates beyond what words can describe and beyond what movement can say. It is the language of the soul. Flamenco is more than a profession to me, it is a way of life, and it permeates my personal and professional life through its philosophy of honesty, dignity and integrity. I believe that one does not have to be a performer to be “a flamenco”. A flamenco is anyone who is emotionally and actively involved in this philosophy. The art of flamenco is merely the outward expression of the flamenco way of life. 
Esmeralda Enrique

Esmeralda Enrique Spanish Dance Company

The award winning Esmeralda Enrique Spanish Dance Company was founded in 1982 in Toronto under the artistic direction of Esmeralda Enrique. Dedicated and driven, the talented musicians, singers and expressive, powerful dancers perform finely wrought pieces that hold in perfect balance tradition and classicism with a modern, contemporary aesthetic. Capturing the essence of flamenco, the Esmeralda Enrique Spanish Dance Company never fails to mesmerize its audiences while bringing to life the contagious excitement and full breadth of feelings that flamenco delivers.

Academy of Spanish Dance

The Academy of Spanish Dance was established by Esmeralda Enrique in 1982. A sound training in flamenco, classical Spanish and regional dance is offered to all students whether they take class for recreation, to gain grace and poise or with the hope of pursuing a professional career. Working closely with dedicated teachers, our students are stimulated and challenged in a positive atmosphere. The satisfaction that comes with achievement benefits many other aspects of their lives.
