Music @ NCL: Flamenco, Ole!

January 24, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Location: Lamb Room

FLAMENCO! The Dance, Music, & Culture of Southern Spain features live dance and music in a vibrant and entertaining production full of color, rhythm, and emotions. Explanations and questions are intermixed with high-energy performance pieces, as well as plenty of audience participation. Learn about the history and geography of Southern Spain, how to play the castanets and las palmas, rhythmic hand-clapping, and Flamenco’s prototypical “zapateo”(footwork). Audience members will be invited to join the artists on stage to do a short dance number at the end. A true taste of the Southern Spanish art of Flamenco will have you saying “Ole!”   


After years of performing and touring with such companies as Noche Flamenca and Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana, Rebeca Tomas founded A Palo Seco Flamenco Company (2010), for which she directs and choreographs her own original productions. An up and coming voice in the U.S. Flamenco community with an artistic vision deeply rooted in Flamenco tradition, yet relevant in a modern urban context, her productions have been proclaimed “a feast for the eyes and the ears” (Theatre Online). Rebeca began her formal dance training in Granada, Spain and later moved to Madrid, where she studied at the internationally renowned Flamenco Academy Amor de Dios.
