Flamenco has played a very important roll in Angelina’s life, it only made sense to share these captivating influences. Moving to Phoenix after receiving 2.5 years of extensive training at the National Conservatory of Flamenco Arts in Albuquerque, New Mexico and traveling to Sevilla, she aspired to give the experience of instruction and guidance she was so fortunate of receiving.

With the help of her friends FPLV made their debut in 2009 at Tucson’s First Flamenco and Spanish Festival. Here at home the community has continued to support FPLV at a weekly show at Gallo Blanco Cafe & Bar located at The Clarendon Hotel.
