‘The man who brought flamenco to Colorado’
René Heredia is a leading figure in the development of flamenco guitar and dance in the United States. He has contributed as a performer, teacher, choreographer, educator, mentor, composer and recording artist.
With roots in Granada, Spain, René was surrounded by masters of flamenco dance and music from birth. His father, a pure Spanish Gypsy, taught his impressionable young son the intricacies and elegance of the rich form of expression.
René proved to be a natural, and at age 13 formed a dance troupe with his five siblings, known as Los Heredia. The family shared their talents at clubs and theatres in their native country as well as performing on television and radio. More on René Heredia
