Belen Maya Flamenco Ballet

She is the daughter of two of the greatest flamenco dancers: Carmen Mora and Mario Maya. As an omen to her future international art Belen was born in New York City while her parents were on tour.

Belen’s dance comes from a personal need to do what is not written. To see her is a journey of the flamenco tradition and what she draws in time and space. For this reason, she was asked by Carlos Saura to represent the future generations of flamenco in the movie “Sevillanas”.

The “bata de cola” (the traditional, long flamenco dress) in Belen Maya’s art is the renaissance of the flamenco female dancer of today. It has been of the maximum expression and delicate dance which has been used in her recent shows (Dibujos, Souvenir and La Voz de su Amo). Transparent and in balance with tradition Belen Maya has perfected her technique and expression to become the best female flamenco dancer.
