Beautiful Flamenco Dancer, soloist and available as Flamenco group. Private Parties, Restaurant gigs, Corporate Events, Educational Institutions, etc.
The Langley High School Orchestra integrated Sara & Ricardo into our study of Spanish music and culture. They presented in our classrooms, and even taught our students a few basic Flamenco steps and palmas rhythms so that we could perform alongside them at our Spanish concert. The performers had a great ability to connect with the students and bring history to life. The interactive performance was especially effective, creating a team-building opportunity while immersing our students in something they had not previously experienced. I would highly recommend them for any educational setting or public performance.
Sara delivered to our group a phenomenal demonstration of Flamenco dance, an informative talk about the history of the dance and it's origins, and fabulous and easy to follow instruction on how to do a simple dance for a group of non-dancers. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening, and I would highly recommend Sara to anyone seeking a Flamenco performance. She is skilled, practiced and passionate about Flamenco and it comes through. She is the real deal!
