The art of Flamenco originates from the south of Spain from a town called Jerez de la Frontera, where the traveling Roma gypsy families migrated from India, through Northern Africa and landed in Spain. Pure Flamenco is what we call the “Cuadro”, which is one solo dancer with live guitarist, singer and percussion in the form of palmas (handclapping). The cuadro functions much like an interaction between jazz musicians who each take the lead in crafting the music. Similarly, the dance interacts with live singer, guitarist and percussion to create an energetic performance with unexpected surprises. We are so pleased to provide this amazing experience to our intermediate, advanced and professional dancers, as they seek a transcendence in this art form, as they experience a connection to fellow artists and learn to “speak” flamenco language in the intimate Cuadro. We are pleased to welcome back powerhouse flamenco singer, Vicente “El Cartucho” Griego, one of North America’s most acclaimed cantaores.
