Noelia & Carlitos: all their performances

Noelia & Carlitos

The table below lists all the performances by Noelia Hurtado and Carlitos Espinoza that I was able to find online. For most performances, I was able to find the dates in which they took place. For a few performances, however, the dates are only approximate. These are listed in italics.

Update (April, 2015): I no longer have the time to keep this list updated, but I encourage visitors to post links to new videos in the comments section below (as many have done already).

Update (October, 2015): Okay, by popular demand I have decided to resume work on this list, and hope to gradually list all performances missing since the last update.

Noelia & Carlitos in London

Noelia Hurtado and Carlitos Espinoza–the couple everyone loves to love–gave a wonderful exhibition in London yesterday. I brought my camera and recorded their performance, which is now publicly available on YouTube. The footage is slightly out of focus, owing to a damaged lens, but you can still see the dancers quite well, especially if you set the resolution to HD.
