She also collaborates with the world premiere of the play "Luz sobre lienzo" by the master Sotelo in the Auditorium 400 at the Centro Nacional de Arte Museo Reina Sofia to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Constitution of Cadiz "La Pepa".

Fuensanta 'la Moneta' not only has acquired, among her artistic strengths, a deep expressive dramatic quality, an incredible mastering of compás (the intricate flamenco rhythms), a large variety of registers, a wide knowledge of cante (flamenco singing forms), but she also has an innate talent that allows her to dance, even the most difficult styles, as easily as she breathes an ancient form of art, and although her approach seems contemporary, her dancing style seems as ancient as the flamenco that flows through her veins.

Biography

Copyright © 2013 Fuensanta La Moneta

Fuensanta “La Moneta”.

Flamenco Dancer.

Granada 1984.



Fuensanta 'La Moneta', is an example of an artist who discovered her vocation early. Her passion for flamenco began during her childhood. Because of her devotion and natural talent, she earned her place in the famous Zambras and Tablaos (flamenco theatres) in the Sacromonte of Granada while she was still a young girl. She also performed at concerts organised by television and radio companies and won many important awards.

La Moneta combines her studies with her work in 'zambras' and 'tablaos' to pay for her dancing training in courses tutored by the best teachers Javier Latorre, Mario Maya, Juan Andrés Maya, Juana Amaya, Matilde Coral, Israel Galván among others.

When she danced in Madrid for the first time at the age of 16 in the Sala Suristán in Madrid, every fan and critic who saw her there conceded that they were looking at someone who had all the qualities to become a big name in flamenco dancing. Following this performance, the flamenco magazine Alma 100 interviewed her and issued her on the cover, purporting her as the most outstanding flamenco dancer born in the eighties.
