FOUR FIELD TRIP PROGRAMS AT FLAMENCO LATINO STUDIOS

WE ARE NOW PLANNING 4 SHOWS DURING MAY 2015!

Flamenco Latino is in the planning stages of offering one show on the same day and time once a week during May 2015. Here are the details for you to consider for bringing your student group to our space:

  • Shows would start at 11 am. The day of the week will be determined soon.
  • Fees would be $7/person, maximum capacity is 80 seats.
  • Two different shows will be offered, "Flamenco and the Ida y Vuelta" and "The Roots of Salsa." One show would be offered the 1st and 3rd weeks of May, the other, the 2nd and 4th weeks of May.
  • Groups attending must be prepaid in full by Mar. 15, 2015.
  • Make your bookings or inquiries now: flamlat@verizon.net

You can also book any of the following four presentations at any time during the year when our studio theater is not being used for dance classes. Fixed price fees are listed below.

One hour group class in flamenco and/or salsa dance
for up to 40 students, single instructor, $200.00. Scheduling available during late mornings and afternoons.

50-minute lecture demonstration performance in Flamenco and the Ida y Vuelta ("Round Trip") Styles
representing an assimilation of Latino songs and rhythms by flamenco artists which started during the late 1800s. The studio will be converted to a black box theatre space with curtains, lighting and seating. Three artists (guitar, 2 dancers), audience of up to 70, $575.00.

Celebrating Latin Heritage: Exploring Spanish and African Roots
Themes in the presentation involve comparisons of rhythmic approaches to music and dance found in pure Spanish Flamenco and Afro-Caribbean roots of Salsa, as well as references to the culture melting pots found in both Spain during the Middle Ages and Hispanic Caribbean countries during the Age of Exploration.

The program focuses on these sections: Flamenco as performed in Andalucia, Afro-Cuban dance accompanied only by percussion and singing, examples from other Latino counties besides Cuba which have contrbuted to the music and dance called Salsa. Four artists (guitar/keyboard, percussion, 2 dancers), audience of up to 70, $700.00.

The Roots of Salsa presentation at Flamenco Latino Studio, conveniently located in Midtown, is a low-cost field trip for a school or community group. This program is a retrospective of Cuban music, the birthplace of all forms referred to today as Salsa. It includes examples of forms from Puerto Rico and Dominican Republic which are part of the Salsa idiom. The presentation features explanation and participation in clave, the backbone rhythm of all types of Latin social dance music as well as participation from a seated audience in clave rhythm and soneo/coro (call and response singing). 10-12 volunteers are invited to learn 2-3 hand percussion instruments, then play with the musicians in different examples. The audience learns simple Mambo steps dancing in front of their seats. Four artists: keyboards/singer, singer/dancer, two percussionists, audience of up to 70, $700.00.

Bookings will be made around steady studio rental clients, so transportation estimates for bringing groups of students must be accurate. Please call 212-399-8519 for availability.
