Save the date! Our 2019 festival will take place from April 10th – 14th. The mainstage show, featuring guest artists from Spain, takes place at the Winspear Centre on April 12th. Tickets will become available when we announce our artists later this fall. Workshops with our guest artists will take place on April 13th and 14th.
We’re taking a break from our fundraiser performance this year but are still hosting flamenco workshops. Stephanie Pedraza returns for a weekend of workshops in flamenco song and dance. Workshop Information at this link.
Did you know Stephanie is also a singer/songwriter? Her original musical compositions are an honest reflection of her rich latin-american background, of her experience growing up in Cali-Colombia and a perfect blend of traditional latin rhythms, root, rock,pop as well as English and Spanish lyrics. She’ll be performing a non-flamenco acoustic evening at Cafe Blackbird here in Edmonton on December 1st. www.stephaniepedraza.com
After two years of flashmobbing, we’ve decided it’s time to pass the torch on to other members of the community and retire the festival flashmob. It’s been a great two years of performing at various venues and events throughout the city. We finished this year with a bang at festival sponsor MarrMac Dance‘s 50th Anniversary celebration.
