I owe my relationship to flamenco to my mother, Andrea Lippai. She first made contact with flamenco in 1991, a year after I was born, at a time when there was almost no flamenco in Hungary. I, however, had the privilege of listening to these special rhythms and songs from my very earliest childhood.
I became a member of the FlamenCorazonArte Dance Theatre Company in 2004. Since 2008, I have been the solo dancer and also the assistant choreographer for the company. I was only 19 when I successfully applied to the Conservatorio Profesional de Danza in Seville and was immediately accepted into the third year of the course in flamenco dance. In May 2013, I graduated in flamenco dancing as the first foreign graduate of the Spanish institute.
During my four years' study in Andalusia, I performed many times in different flamenco clubs, cultural centres and theatres in Seville. Until now I return regullarly to act and to continue to develop. I had the honour of choreographing a dance for the European Commission’s year-end gala in 2011. The following year, I was invited to perform in Warsaw at the 40th anniversary celebration of the university’s Iberian Studies Department.
My first independent show ’Colores de Mujer’ (Colors of Woman), was performed in Seville on 8 March 2013, to celebrate International Women’s Day. It was also performed in Hungary at the 9th Hungarian Dance Festival. In 2014 I received the Fülöp Victor Scholarship as a choreographer that helped me to create my new performance: 'SIGHS'. The Premier was presented by the Hungarian National Dance Theatre and was also invited to Madrid to the Flamenco Festival 'Flamencos y Otras Aves'
Due to the great success everywhere in 2015 and in 2016, I went on tour with "Suspiros-Sighs" accompanied by my fellow musicians Cristina Soler, Juan José Bando, Gergely Tar and Szirtes Edina Mókus. On 29 April, 2016 I was honoured by the "Hungarian Dance Artists Association" with "Season's Best Young-Stage Dancer" Award in the Palace of Arts, Budapest, on the International World's Dance Day.
In 2016/17 I focused on creating new shows.
My current repertoire is:
- The dancing Conductor
- Flamenco Soul
- If Sally would dance
- Suspiros - Sighs
- Las Flamencas – Mother and Daughter
