Carrying the torch with a light heart: La Emi at María Benítez Cabaret
The torch is being passed this summer at the María Benítez Cabaret at the Lodge at Santa Fe. La Emi, the stage name for Emmy Grimm, is headlining there for the first time. Starting at age four, Grimm became one of local legend María Benítez’s most talented young protéges. Beginning in 1970, Benítez taught generations of bright-eyed Santa Fe girls and boys to dance, though onstage she often embodied the darkest and most adult emotions of flamenco. The tragic siguiriya, her favorite dance, was often performed to lyrics about death and persecution.

La Emi headlines season at venue where she made her debut
Grimm will headline a 39-show season inside the Benitez Cabaret at the Lodge at Santa Fe.

And yes, the nerves are still there.

“It’s incredible to have this opportunity,” Grimm says in a recent interview. “I never dreamed that I would be headlining on the same stage that I got my start. There are so many emotions. All these years later, I’m still nervous each time I take the stage.”

Grimm is known as La Emi.

The season opens tonight in Santa Fe, and Grimm is looking forward to elevating her performances during the run.
