Interview Saray García
«My training is based on tablaos»
«From my training I emphasize that, when I had been in dance school for two months, when I was six years old, my teacher took me to a Festival in La Linea de la Concepción. That feeling of getting on stage, contact with the public … It’s something I don’t forget.
»From my professional career I highlight the moment of sharing the stage with artists that I have always followed since I was little.
»And for me dancing in a tablao is one of the most important spaces for an artist. I think every artist should step on the tablaos because it is where they learn the most every day. It is where the truth of flamenco is lived at all times. It is a more intimate space between the artist and the public. I personally owe a lot to tablaos since my training is based on tablaos ».
