Item description for Antonio Triana and the Spanish Dance: A Personal Recollection (Choreography and Dance Studies, Vol 6) by Vega de Triana...
This book also traces the evolution of the Spanish Dance technique, marked as it is by a turbulent history. Antonio Triana was a dancer of mature artistry, dignity and power. His physical and technical achievements went beyond what is generally known about Spanish Dance. His dance presented the essence of the Spanish character and, in his choreography, he used his traditional background for his brilliant inspirations. He partnered the legendary La Argentinita, Pilar Lopez and Carmen Amaya with spirit and gallantry. Over the years he developed a very distinct method of teaching and he became one of the foremost Spanish Flamenco dancers and teachers of his time. Rita Vega de Triana formed the Triana Ballet Espaol with her late husband. She currently teaches Hispanic dance and related subjects at the University of Texas at El Paso and directs her own school as well as performing around the United States as a guest artist and choreographer.

Great reading, interesting photos. Jun 24, 1999
Well written account of Flamenco and Spanish dance in the early half of this century. Triana an obviously very talented individual caught up in the throes of the other inspired artists of the time. Extremely interesting, however polished storyline.
