Fiesta Flamenca

Fiesta Flamenca is a colorful ensemble including dancers, guitarists, percussionists, and singers in traditional Flamenco dress whose participatory workshops and concerts bring students on an exciting journey to discover flamenco and other musical traditions of Southern Spain. In interactive workshops, children learn to sing traditional Spanish songs, perform palmas (clapping) and golpes (footwork), as well as create their own original dance moves inspired by this tradition. In concerts, the artists demonstrate the vocal, instrumental, and dance history of flamenco music, as well as the instruments inherent to the form and involve audience members in learning songs and dance steps.
