American Bolero Dance Company Reviews

"The exquisite bolero styles of the late 18th and early 19th centuries were represented by Ms. Granados's "Bolero," a solo for herself, and "Sevillanas Boleras," a group work. Both buoyant, and the dancers' deft castanet playing had the polish of civilized epigrams."

Jack Anderson - The New York Times


"The musicians and singers were first-rate and buoyed up the dancing. The whole program had a glossy, well-thought-out look ..."

Phyllis Goldman - Backstage

“Olé! Olé! to the American Bolero Dance Company!  Another Spanish dance company hits the New York stage with gusto!  Gabriela Granados’ production...was nothing less than spectacular...Gabriela Granados’ fiery Soleá was the height of daring theatricality.  Glorious in its outpouring of energetic dancing, Granados stage presence resonates with power and intricate detail...”

Eva Lopez, Attitude

"The American Bolero Dance Company managed to reawaken and rekindle the desires for flamenco dance and make it especially appealing to the audience..."

Sunday's Ethnos (European Newspaper)

“Local Flamenco artists have been knocking audiences out of their sillas this season in New York.  Gabriela Granados inaugurated a first Friday of the month “Tablao Flamenco” in Astoria (Queens) at the Centro Español…The pieces to die for were two.  One was the Granaína by Alfonso Mogaburo Cid…The second was the star’s Soleá…I’ve seen this La Tati choreography before, and on Ms. Granados it works perfectly - or rather she works it perfectly.  From earlier wistfully romantic stormy interpretations …Ms. Granados has moved on.  This evening we witnessed her maturity, expressed in a furiously raging thunderstorm of intention with an ever more deeply pained face, as she squirreled into the ground in weighted curls…”
