Valerie Scannura

The Ritmo Flamenco Dance & Music Ensemble was formed in 1995 by Valerie Scannura (Artistic Director, Choreographer, Dancer) and Roger Scannura (Music Director, flamenco guitarist). Since then, she has performed in concerts and festivals worldwide. A graduate of the National Ballet School’s Teacher Training Program, she began her studies in flamenco in Toronto before travelling to Spain to further absorb ideas and training methods at various centers such as Madrid, and Jerez de la Frontera. The mandate of Valerie’s company is to create original concepts that weave in and out of various dance forms while working closely with music director Roger Scannura. Her work has received praise by critics and arts presenters and she has spearheaded many projects for the company as well as continuing to teach in her Toronto studio and in eastern Ontario at the Quinte Ballet School of Canada. Proving that flamenco is bred in the bone, her daughter Anjelica is Co-Artistic Director of the company and is a successor of her work as she is an award-winning choreographer and Valerie’s artistic partner.
