She went on to dance as prima ballerina in the company of Luisillo for three years, before founding her own company and touring throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Carmela has performed for the King of Spain, Juan Carlos I, and the Duke of Edinburgh, and has danced in all the leading tablaos in Spain. In 1988, she joined her father’s company and made her debut at the Joyce Theatre in New York City to rave reviews.
Her career is characterized by tremendous success and includes collaborations with the Jose Greco II Company and her sister, Lola Greco. In addition to the Joyce Theater, Carmela’s list of performance venues include Lincoln Center, Jacob’s Pillow, the Jackie Gleason Theater in Miami, Teatro Bellas Artes of Madrid, and the Seville Bienal de Flamenco, among many others.

In 2005, Carmela formed Compañía Carmela Greco, a touring Flamenco and Spanish dance company.
