Native to the Canary Islands, María was born into a family of flamenco blood, the Borruls. María Juncal began her path studying ballet and Spanish classic dance in Tenerife, where she was a pupil of Miguel Navarro, Rosalina Ripoll and her aunt, Trini Borrul. In Madrid, she studied with legendary flamenco stars as La Tati, Güito, Merche Esmeralda and Ciro, and classic dance with Dagmara Brown.

She has worked with the companies of Manolete, José Greco, Güito and “Flamenco bells”, doing tours in France, Spain, German, United Kingdom, Canada, The United States, Japan and China. She excelled as a soloist in the show “Pure Passion”, produced for Joaquín Cortés, and in “The Gypsy Muse” by Paco Peña. In Los Angeles, María has collaborated with Debbie Allen, choreographer, dancer and actress of the series ‘Fame’ in her documentaries on dance.

As invited artist, she took part in the Opera “Carmen” in the Palace of Fine Arts of the City of Mexico. In 2004, she was awarded the National Prize of Flamenco Dance “Antonio Gades” in Cordoba, Spain. In June, 2006 she was awarded the prize to the best soloist choreography in the XV Contest of Choreography of Spanish dance and Flamenco in the Albeniz Theatre of Madrid.

With her shows “Azabache y Miel” and “Instantes” María became an audience favorite along with glowing reviews from Mexico City and Madrid. Additionally, she was a soloist and choreographer in the show “Jarocho”, under Richard O’Neal’s direction, assistant director of ‘Riverdance.’

We welcome María Juncal to Los Angeles for this Vida Flamenca workshop. This will be María’s first workshop in Southern California in over 8 years.
