    Performing Arts- Dance
    Our performance is a wonderful blend of entertainment and education. The artists - in full, colorful, traditional Flamenco costumes - perform and explain the intricacies of Flamenco dance, song, and its rhythms. Participation from the audience is essential.  The objectives of this program are: to show the origins of the flamenco dance, song and music; to demonstrate and relate the relationships between Spain and the Latin American cultures; and present a high quality, entertaining multilingual program. This dynamic program highlights the rhythms and emotions of Flamenco.  Flamenco began in Southern Spain, and we bring to our educational programs the essence of the different culture that influenced Flamenco: Andalusian, Gypsy, North African, Arabic and Judaic.  Unlike other art forms, the traditional dances do not tell stories but instead portray feelings.  The program consists of a series of solos, duets and company numbers.
