From the Los Angeles Times:<P><B>Ortega Bares His Skill, Not Skin<BR>Fiery artist's company gets flamenco fest off to an invigorating start with a theatrical set.</B><P>By JENNIFER FISHER, Special to The Times<P><BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>To his credit, flamenco flame Domingo Ortega did not feature his bare chest in his company's stylishly dynamic concert that opened the New World Flamenco Festival promisingly at the Irvine Barclay Theatre in Irvine on the weekend. Not that there's anything inherently wrong with shirtless dancing--publicity photos had shown the handsome Ortega looking just fine topless, his dramatically downcast face framed by shaggy long hair. It's just that there's a tendency for the "new men of flamenco" to confuse exposed flesh, and its concomitant preening and posturing, with genuinely charismatic dancing. Ortega is more sophisticated than that. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><BR><A HREF="http://www.calendarlive.com/top/1,1419,L-LATimes-Search-X!ArticleDetail-40513,00.html?search_area=Blended&channel=Search&search_text=%22Dance+Review%22" TARGET=_blank><B>MORE...</B></A><BR>

From the Los Angeles Times: (a beautiful description of a Flamenco dancer's hands)<P><B>With These Hands, No Castanets Needed</B><P>By LEWIS SEGAL, Times Dance Critic<P><BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>You could find plenty of castanets on sale in the lobby but none on the stage of the Irvine Barclay Theatre when Yaelisa and her Bay Area-based Caminos Flamencos performed as part of the New World Flamenco Festival on Tuesday. <BR> Instead, the evening became a monument to Yaelisa's incredibly supple and expressive hands, hands with a life of their own that embellished her taut, forceful dancing with intricate flourishes, energizing the space around her. Castanets (a late addition to flamenco tradition) would only have been an obstruction.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://www.calendarlive.com/top/1,1419,L-LATimes-Search-X!ArticleDetail-40693,00.html?search_area=Blended&channel=Search&search_text=%22Dance+Review%22" TARGET=_blank><B>MORE...</B></A><BR>
