Anita "La Maltesa"



From Maltese origins, she attended the 'Kenmore School for Dancing' at the age of five. By the age of 16 she had completed the ISTD 'Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing' Syllabus and went on to further her dancing career performing in the UK. 

In 1985, her interests turned to flamenco music and dance. Having studied the basic forms of the art in London, she moved to the heart of Andalucia, Seville, where she received personal tuition from highly acclaimed dancers, namely, Juana Amaya, Matilde Coral and La Tona. Using her singing talents in Spanish song, she interpreted rumbas and sevillanas in the Andalucian Ferias between 1991 and 1994. 

In 1995 she relocated to London where she joined forces with flamenco guitarist, Ramon Ruiz and formed the company 'Fiesta Flamenca' performing in renowned British Theatres, to list a few, Blumsbury theatre, London, Purcell Room, London, 'Olimpia exibition, London.
