Ballet Flamenco La Rosa, a professional Flamenco company based in Miami and made up of dancers and musicians form Spain, Latin America and the U.S.,  presents What is Flamenco?, an afternoon of live Flamenco music and dance, tracing Flamenco’s history and development with a lecture by Artistic Director Ilisa Rosal, followed by a question and answer session with the artists. 

 Guitarist Israel Heredia and Singer Gambimbas from Sacromonte, Granada, Spain and dancers Jose Junco and Mayelu Perez will demonstrate Flamenco at its best. 

With its spectacular footwork, precise athleticism and vibrant energy, this art form is at once sensual and spiritual, raw and refined, and filled with both restrained passion and electrifying release, making it a powerful and passionate expression that has inspired writers, composers, choreographers, painters and sculptors for centuries.

This performance will explore a range of rhythms and styles that will take the audience through dramatic, soulful, joyous, sensual and passionate moods.

 The dynamic vocals, exquisite guitar melodies and virtuosity of the dance embodies the grace, power and beauty that has made Flamenco so loved by audiences throughout the world.

The excitement of improvisation that is authentic Flamenco will have you shouting “ole” as you experience the compelling and enchanting art of Flamenco.
