About Irene

Flamenco is a necessity to Irene La Sentío. It is the only possible way of communicating in the most honest way.


Irene discovered her passion at 13 and flamenco has not left her side since. She was acquainted to the “baile” thanks to Juan de los Reyes and Juana Amaya. She then continued her training with the famous Antonio Canales, la Familia Farruco and Fuensanta La Moneta. Her perseverance, strength, and ability to infuse her emotions led to her artistic name of “La Sentío” – a name given to her by La Farruca.


In 2008 she was a finalist at the Festival Internacional del Cante de las Minas de La Unión. With the support of her mentors La Farruca and Farruquito, Irene performed at the Bienal de Flamenco in Seville, showing promise as a flamenco dancer.

La Sentío then presented her first show “De mi faldiquera,” bringing new international opportunities. She toured with flamenco dancers such as Farruco, Óscar de los Reyes, Sergio Aranda and Jairo Barrull. Irene also participated in international flamenco festivals such as Mont de Marsan, the Festival Flamenco in Rome, the Suma Flamenca in Madrid, the Bienal de Arte Flamenco in Malaga, the Festival Flamenco in Ibiza, in Valladolid, in Eilat (Israel), in Edmonton (Canada), in Banyuls-sur-Mer (France), the already mentioned Bienal de Sevilla and Los Jueves Flamencos de Cajasol. She has collaborated in some avant-garde shows with Tito Losada, the Chekara Orquestra of Tetuán, Jaco Abel and the pianist Miriam Méndez.  La Sentío is also a frequent flamenco dancer in the best tablaos of Seville (El Arenal, Casa de la Memoria, Museo del Baile Flamenco), Barcelona (Tablao Cordobés, Tablao de Carmen y Los Tarantos), Madrid (Casa Patas, Tablao Villa-Rosa, Las Carboneras and Cardamomo) and Granada (“La Casa del Arte Flamenco” and “Los Olvidados”).
