Family-Friendly Show by A Palo Seco Flamenco Company at Flushing Town Hall
A Palo Seco Flamenco Company
This family-friendly production features live dance and music in a vibrant and entertaining production full of color, rhythm, and emotions. Explanations and interactive exercises are intermixed with high-energy performance pieces, as well as plenty of audience participation. Audience members of all ages learn about the history and geography of Southern Spain and are taught how to play the castanets and las palmas, rhythmic hand-clapping. They are also led through Flamenco’s prototypical “zapateo” (footwork) and are invited to join the artists o do a short dance number at the end. This top-notch performance gives family members of all ages a true taste of the Southern Spanish art of Flamenco; children and parents alike will leave with a big “Ole!”
After years of performing and touring with such companies as Noche Flamenca and Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana, Rebecca Thomas founded A Palo Seco Flamenco Company (2010), for which she directs and choreographs her own original productions. Her artistic vision is deeply rooted in Flamenco tradition, yet relevant in a modern urban context.
