They have a home page there:
It seems to me that their repertory includes mostly traditional Spanish dancing (especially flamenco). Their first director was Antonio Gades.

There's a tango group trying this too -- Tangokinesis. There are dances, ballets, whatever, but the language is tango. I thought they were fascinating. The program started with something we'd all recognize as a traditional tango, and then each piece got more abstract, until the last was a Balanchinesque concerto -- but the language was tango!
If anyone sees this, I hope you'll report.
