Flamenco Choreography

"A remarkable performing artist and skilled choreographer." Juilliard School

"Creatively choreographed and brilliantly danced, the intense drama of 'En Las Minas de Cobre' offered a deeply moving theatre experience." Viola Swisher, Dance Magazine.

"The Morcas expand Flamenco Dancing. The three pieces to J.S. Back were a happy marriage of music, strong body line, and heel work that lovingly combined with the score." Byrne Miller, Jacob's Pillow, Journal


Teaching Flamenco

"Compelling technique--a shrewd sense of artistry." The New York Times

"He is a superb artist and excellent teacher." Ted Shawn


Flamenco Performance

"The concert fascinated Morca's audience." Dance Magazine

"Rich toned castanets did their dramatic dance of sound, soft and delicate, or in impassioned crescendos, the concert fascinated Morca's audience." Viola Swisher, Dance Magazine.

"A shrewd sense of artistry. The hit of the afternoon at Jacob's Pillow." Anna Kisselgoff, New York Times

"The Morcas were absolutely brilliant, infusing every dance with the exciting artistry that transcends technique and that technique looked grand enough." Carol Beers, Seattle Times

"A beautiful and exciting artist." Rudolph Serkin

"I have never seen two artists who could hold an audience spellbound for two hours, and then have that same audience ask for more and yet more." W. A. Gregory Dean, College of Fine and Performing Arts, Western Washington University, Bellingham, Washington.

"The beauty, poetry, and motion of flamenco guitar had certainly captivated the audience. Seeing Morca Dance Theatre in the impressive Capt Bougainvillea Theatre was an unforgettable experience." The New Zealand Advocate

"Morca was brilliant. He executed the best footwork and palmas I have ever heard." Walter Terry

"It is indeed rare that a hardened critic is left gasping for breath, yet such was the case for the concert of Senor Morca. He is not only the most exciting Spanish dancer, male or female, that I have ever seen, but far away the most consummate and sensitive artist. Teodoro Morca has that rare talent and accomplished artistry to impress even the most blase concert-goer." World and Music critic of Los Angeles, Henry Roth, after seeing a solo concert.
