Our 5th Annual Flamenco Fiesta was a tremendous success! ¡Muchisimas gracias!
Updated: Jul 11, 2022
We held our Fifth Annual Student Showcase and Flamenco Fiesta at the end of February! Thanks to everyone who came out and supported the Flamenco del Lago community! We're so grateful for all of the community support we received! ¡Muchisimas gracias a todos!
The pandemic put many events on hold. We didn't have our annual Flamenco Fiesta in 2021, but we were so excited to bring it back for 2022! The students performed at the beautiful Regent Street Black Box Theater. It was such a fun, lovely and supportive event!
We can't wait to have another show in the Winter of 2022. Join a class now to be able to perform this winter. ¡Vamo' las guap@s!
“Our dancers have been working hard during the entire pandemic. We danced online over zoom for many months and in May of 2021 we finally got back to the studio. We're excited to share what we've been working on with the community!”
Program for the Flamenco Fiesta!
Our intermediate class performed a beautiful and dramatic Farruca. !Vamo' ya! The palo was traditionally danced by men, but is now danced by women as well. They also performed a cute and flirty Tangos de Málaga. Stay tuned for videos of these stunning dancers!
Our advanced dancers performed an amazing Guajiras - a palo originally from Cuba - brought back to Spain. It's danced with fans and the colorful fans of the dancers were stunning. They also opened the show with a rhythmically complex and sexy Tangos. Stay tuned for photos of these dancers!
Our complementos (props) class performed three pieces with live accompaniment provided by Jake Abbott. A dramatic and somber Seguiriyas with castanets; a lively Bulerías de Jerez with shawls; and a traditional Alegrías de Cadiz with the Bata de Cola! The Bata de Cola (the long train skirts) are so dramatic and beautiful, you won't see this anywhere else in Utah!
The dancers did an amazing job with these complex and technically-challenging palos! We'll be sharing photos of these pieces SOON! ¡Nos vemos!
