Rebeca Tomás has been described as awesomely fiery (New York Times), masterful, and a postcard image of the feminine Flamenco dancer (Kansas City Metropolis).  After years of performing and touring with such companies as Noche Flamenca and Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana, she founded A Palo Seco Flamenco Company (2010), for which she directs and choreographs her own original productions. An up and coming voice in the U.S. Flamenco community with an artistic vision deeply rooted in Flamenco tradition, yet relevant in a modern urban context, her productions have been proclaimed a feast for the eyes and the ears (Theatre Online).

“This year’s Encuentro NYC will breathe new life into our way of looking at Colombian music, focusing on opening our arms to the cultures that represent the source from where this music has evolved.  In celebrating our multi-culturalism, we become more aware of how we are all connected through music and dance.”
— Co-director Anna Povich de Mayor.
