FLAMENCO SI – Arts Education Program
“Flamenco Si” Lecture Demonstration Performances introduce the Art of Flamenco through explanations and demonstrations of Flamenco’s intricacies and cultural history, a wonderful blend of entertainment and education for children of all ages.
We discuss how the music, song and dance all relate to each other with demonstrations of the varied instruments and techniques involved in the art form: castañuelas (castanets), guitarra (guitar), cante (voice), and dance (Baile). Audience participation is a vital aspect of the show, which ends with a Q & A.
