Ann Murphy

“Ms. Acuña is a star in her own right”

Ann Murphy

“Acúña is a mesmerizing woman and a sensuous, generous dancer, as gifted in classical Spanish dance as in gypsy Flamenco”

Dance Critic, Oakland Tribune

Sunset Magazine

“Flamenco Star Carolé Acuña Brings the Soul of Spain to San Francisco”

Amy Chen

“Acuña has not only inherited her mother’s striking appearance but also her innate talent for Flamenco dancing.”

Mary Murphy

“You have such a strong presence, your back and hands are gorgeous, you are a strong dancer. The way that you use your shall is like dancing with a partner, you have complete control and yet you let it flow freely.”

Nigel Lythgoe

“Flamenco dancing is closely related to the Spanish culture and for a dancer to understand the dance, you have to understand the culture, it is clear that you understand both, you are a powerful performer, you have control of the dance yet you allow the dance to have some give at the right moments. Along with a select few, you are definitely the top Flamenco dancer in America.”

Nigel Lythgoe

“You (Carolé) are a mature dancer, you have a presence beyond your years.”

Jason Gilkinson

“Your entire dance and every move that you made was emotionally moving to me.”

Janice Kendricks

“Carolé should be an Academy Award winning actress: AND THE OSCAR GOES TO CAROLÉ ACUÑA! . . . and CHEERS! She is not only funny, but inspirational at the same time. That takes talent, which she has loads of. I’ve gotta come see her perform more often”

Dale Louise Evje

“Carolé is an inspiringly accomplished flamenco dancer, comedienne, actor, and more talents diversifying her”

Dale Louise Evje

“The first half concluded with Carolé dancing jota. In this particular northern Spain (Basque) originated folk dance form, she excelled with castanets, displaying elevation, manual dexterity and charm in her balletic interpretation of a classical form. I enjoyed Carolé in this jota. She stretched it out in the middle and made it her own. It felt like she was actually free to fly”

Dale Louise Evje

“Carolé’s solo of incredible classical Flamenco technique and presence in Caña where she wore a formal red/black polka-dot bata de cola costume. Her exquisite carriage and Sevilla skirt/train work were admirable.”

Dale Louise Evje

“The best solo of the night was Coraje/Courage” Carolé’s Martinete palo dance, accompanied by the two guitarists hitting canes on the floor while she elegantly wrestled with a staff. Wearing an all white pant suit with black trim, Carolé placed this staff in every direction ranging from baton to crucifix. At one point she sat on the floor facing away from the audience and pushed it around her back to reveal her pant straps. Her yogic flexibility and discipline came through in this solo.”

Virginia Lanely

“Carolé’s stand-up comedy is intelligent, fast paced and full of energy. I am amazed at her ability to show her raw self and transform into virtually anyone, her face is like rubber and her body is agile.”

Dean Inouye

“I was standing in the Brainwash on what was probably my first or second time there. Carolé was the only other person there and we introduced ourselves and started talking about comedy. She couldn’t stop making faces and striking poses… she had so much energy. I thought, “If Jim Carrey was a beautiful woman dancer, this is who he’d be.” Keep on joking, dancing and acting, Carolé”

Serdar Yayla

I was mesmerized when I saw you, (Carolé) it was just like a movie scene for me. I should really thank you for those moments.

Dale Louise Evje

Emily Browning
