Fuensanta La Moneta – Step by Step


The road traveled by this young dancer is plunges down to the deepest roots of flamenco, in the search for her own expression and understanding of this art that feels free and calm, taking the reins of the stage, absorbing it and transporting it to the audience with her magic.

"Step by Step" is the synthesis of Fuensanta "La Moneta" journey through places like India, Italy, Paris and, of course, Granada, where she was born and began her wonderful footwork along with La Mariquilla, Juan Andrés Maya and Manolete.

She formed part of Javier Latorre’s company in the flamenco ballets Triana, In the Name of the Rose and Rinconete y Cortadillo. In the flamenco show Tribute to Fosforito in the National Competition of Córdoba and in the film Scandalous [¿Por qué se frotan las patitas?] from filmmaker Álvaro Begines.


“...Dresed in a simple white nightgown for most of the show, La Moneta dominates the stage with her dancing. She occupies the space and knows how to position herself...” “...with strength, listening to the silence, placing her arms and giving space to the footwork...” - Ángeles Castellano, El País

“...La Moneta says more when she dances than anything else. She can tell you that she doesn’t fall back on her youthfulness; she is there because she works for it, she is aware of her dancing and is going to capture you, and she will let you go whenever she wants, because she is calling the shots; and there is no other intention than that, letting her call the shots that we have come to enjoy...” - Rocio Hellin, La Flamenca web magazine.
