What people say...

“Flamenco Dance Project was truly a one-of-a-kind experience for our students. The group numbers were energetic and fluid, and the solo numbers were engrossing, unique and vibrant. The artistry of the performance was something to behold and the high caliber of the performance was a topic of conversation on our campus long after the show was over. In short, it was a great performance by a truly gifted dance company.”

“...The solos, which are the soul of flamenco... revealed different aspects of the performers’ personalities; for instance, the way Sabrina Avilés’ arms coax and embrace...”

“Thank you for participating and making (the performance) such a successful event... Everyone learned a bit about Flamenco and realized all the components to such beautiful and passionate music. The guitar was so beautiful to hear... and Sabrina’s dancing – so vibrant! People loved it!”

“You were amazing!! Such authority when you dance. You really mean it. Everyone else looks
not quite there by comparison. And you reach such exquisite builds... you fall back and then do it again. A riveting performance...”
                                                        – Barret Brown, professional Ice Dancer and Choreographer

ABOUT LA LUPI
In 1992, Susana Lupiañez Pinto finished her studies summa cum laude at the Superior Conservatory of Dance in Málaga, Spain. While pursuing her studies, she also began her professional career as a dancer. Years later, after watching her dance, the guitarist Juan Maya Marote, decided to take her with him to Madrid. For the next three years, La Lupi danced in his company, “Compañía de Danza y Flamenco Contemporaneo” together with Ángeles Arranz, touring around Spain.

In 1999, La Lupi established her own company, “Compañía Flamenca La Lupi,” which allows her to choreograph and star in her own performances. She tours all over in Spain and performs at important theaters and festivals around the world. Among her highlights are: “RETOrno,” “Cartas a Pastora” (a tribute to Pastora Imperio) and “Mudanza.”

In 2008, she starred and choreographed the music video, “Brindo por tí,” performed by the Malagueñan singer, Diana Navarro. 

In 2010, inspired by La Lupi’s style, Rafael Amargo produces a dance show, which specifically showcased her talents called, “Princesas del Flamenco.” It premiered at the Teatro Calderón in Madrid. La Lupi continues her collaboration with Amargo, as guest artist in his company as well as the company of Juan de Juan.

In 2012, the Flamenco singer, Miguel Poveda, invites her to accompany him as his only dancer on his “ArteSano” tour, where she performed five Flamenco rhythms: Nana, Sevillanas, Alegrías, Tangos de Triana and Bulerías. The performance is eventually recorded live at the Teatro Real of Madrid. The following year, she is asked to perform at the legendary tablao, El Corral de la Moreria, along with the dancers Ángel Rojas and Pol Vaquero in the show “El Arte por Delante.”

That same year, she received the 2013 "Sentir Málaga” Award  from the XXI Century Foundation for representing Málaga throughout the world through dance. 

In 2015, she is commissioned by the Ballet Nacional de España (The Spanish National Ballet) to choreograph a Tangos, as part of the show “Zagüán.” Later that year, she performed a duet in “F L A M E N C O S” with famed flamenco dancer Antonio Canales. 

In 2017, La Lupi inaugurated the opening of the 5th Flamenco Biennial of Malaga to a sold-out audience with her new show, “La Paula” starring guest artists such as Miguel Poveda, Juan de Juan, and Virginia Gámez. Later that year, “La Paula” also opened to a sold-out audience at the Flamenco Festival Madrid in the Teatro Fernán Gómez. 

La Lupi has won competitions for her interpretations of Alegrías and Seguiriyas. 

She has taught dance classes and workshops all over the world. Many young dancers started their training with her, moving on to professional dance companies with established artists – her most famous student being Rocio Molina, now considered one of the greatest living flamenco dancers today.
