About Gypsy Cat: Talented world class artists blend the sounds and rhythms of jazz, blues, rock, and flamenco.  Gypsy Cat brings the music of Carl Ferrari with the choreography of flamenco dancer Ana Miranda.

"Gypsy Cat played a lovely original song called "Jaleo", while Ana danced passionately upon a wooden stage. The experience was like that of a story unfolding before our eyes and ears as the band played flawlessly.", March 22, 2010  

About Aire Dance Company: Launched in 2011, Aire Dance Company, under the direction of Ana Miranda, presents contemporary dance rooted in art of flamenco.  "Aire" (pronounced in Spanish) is a flamenco term that describes the unique quality that a performer brings to their craft.  In the same way, Aire Dance Company strives to develop a unique dance vocabulary, combining elements of flamenco, contemporary dance and dance theatre.

“Ana Miranda’s Flamenco was simply outstanding. It brought the full house to a roar and raised the vibration of the space 100 fold.” Sunpost/Artburst, 4/28/11
