a family portrait…
Myriam Allard began dancing professionally in tablaos in Spain and Japan and joined Israel Galván’s company in Sevilla for his work Galvánicas in 2001. Since then, Allard has been a guest artist and has led master classes for various artists/companies such as Flamenco Rosario, Claire Marchand and Apsâra Flamenco (France). After many years living in Spain, Allard settled in Montréal where she has her own company, La Otra Orilla, and her flamenco studio, el Pleamar.
