Virginia began her training at the early age of five in Cordoba, an ancient city in the heart of Andalusia – the birthplace of flamenco. By the age of seven, she was awarded a place at the Cordoba’s Dance Conservatory a 14-year long professional flamenco program offered at Spain’s National Conservatories.
Her dedication to her art led her tparticipate and win two major dance competitions at a young age, as well as to become a finalist on Spanish Television’s popular talent show “Veo Veo”. Since then, Virginia has performed extensively in Spain at festivals and theatres with various companies.
In 2013 Virginia moved to Toronto with her family and has since produced her own shows, and works as a dancer and teacher for Esmeralda Enrique Flamenco Dance Company amongst others.
“The world of dance gives you unforgettable experiences, it surrounds you with people reaching for the same dream. The friendships you make will persist throughout your life and you will be influenced by people who contribute to your training and encourage you grow as a person and artist. In short, I always say, dance is my life and I hope always will be.” (Virginia Castro Durán)
