“I’ll have none of that nonsense,” Patiño said when told about the hurdles a non-Andalusian must overcome in order to gain credibility in the highly competitive world of flamenco. “Look at me: I’m from Castellón, not a flamenco market, but I have it inside me and anyone can have it. I love going around the world and being surprised by what other dancers do. I love coming to San Antonio to contribute my knowledge, but it is as important for me as it is for [the local dancers].”

She’s thrilled and grateful to be in San Antonio and is confident that the local flamenco culture will continue to grow.

“What I’m most impressed with is that [the local dancers] are very concerned with putting on good shows and bringing quality to the city,” Patiño said. “They work very hard and that always gives good results. Not all [foreign] companies bring artists from Spain [to the U.S.] and I’m very grateful they contacted me. What they’re doing is very interesting and I think flamenco in SA is in good hands.”
