ABOUT THE FLASHMOB 

Our 2018 festival flashmob is a tientos-tangos created by Vancouver’s Stephanie Pedraza involving live flamenco dance, song, and guitar. A group of local flamencos spent the fall learning their parts and came together in November for formal performances of the choreography in the Winspear lobby before an ESO evening and on stage at our December fundraiser performance “Flamenco at MacEwan”. The group went on to teach the choreography, song, and rhythmic clapping to a new group of flashmobbers in February.

Want to join in on the fun? Have a look at last year’s Festival Flashmob page for an idea of what to expect.

There is plenty of opportunity to be as little or as fully involved as you like with singing, dancing, and/or clapping depending on your experience and comfort level. Unlike the fall performances, the flashmob is informal. All levels are welcome and the attire is street wear. There is no obligation to perform. If you are a guitarist interested in learning the accompaniment, please sign up as well and we’ll see what can be arranged.
