A prayer before going into stage
Alba Heredia is a young flamenco dancer from Sacromonte, Granada (Spain). She is heir to a long lasting flamenco dancer family: The Maya.
On March 2017 she had her chance to dance at Villamarta Theater in Festival de Jerez, a big step in her career since this festival is considered to be the most important flamenco festival in the world, and Villamarta theater is its main venue.
Nervous, uneasy, she faced an audience full of flamenco experts and specialized press.
