Karen Flamenco is an acclaimed and unique dance company known for its collaborative and interactive flamenco performances. Following the highly successful summer debut production of Peter Pan, the Karen Flamenco Company are delighted to enter into the magical world of Hans Christian Andersen and continue to bring flamenco to a wider audience through theatre and dance.
