Fundraiser Weekend 2018

Nov 30 – Dec 1, 2018

Workshops – This year’s festival fundraiser weekend features workshops in flamenco song and dance with Stephanie Pedraza. Dance classes require a bit of past experience as a pre-requisite but all levels are welcome in the cante class. Info below.

Performance – We’re taking a break this year from our fundraiser flamenco performance but there is still an evening of live music with Stephanie Pedraza on December 1st. Did you know that apart from being a flamenco dancer and singer, Stephanie is also a singer/songwriter? Her original musical compositions are an honest  reflection of her rich latin-american background, 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 with a portion of the proceeds going to support our festival. Tickets at this link.
