Don’t miss your chance to learn from Madrileña, Soledad Barrio!
This Saturday, join us for a workshop with visiting artist, Soledad Barrio.
So, we’ve mentioned this workshop before and you might have heard of her performance on Saturday evening at the Chan Centre (it’s going to be a good one!), but who is Soledad Barrio?
Born in Madrid, Soledad Barrio has performed and appeared as a soloist with many renowned flamenco companies, including Manuela Vargas, Blanca del Rey, Luisillo, El Guito, Manolete, Cristobal Reyes, and El Toleo, Ballet Espanol de Paco Romero, Festival Flamenco and more! She has travelled around the world and performed on four continents, dancing along side flamenco greats: Alejandro Granados, Isabel Bayón, Jesus Torres, Miguel Pérez, Manolo Marin, Javier Barón, Merce Esmeralda, Rafael Campallo and Belén Maya.
With such an extensive experience, it comes as no surprise that she has been the recipient of awards and honours worldwide and the co-founder of the flamenco company, Noche Flamenca. This Saturday, we Vancouverites are quite fortunate to have the opportunity to see Soledad and Noche Flamenca perform at the Chan Centre (Jan. 21st, 8pm).
We’re back for a fresh semester at Karen Flamenco!
We’re starting the new year at Karen Flamenco today and you don’t want to miss out! New students are always welcome at the studio. But that’s old news. So what’s new in the studio? Check it out:
Already a student? Talk to Karen about her Performance Precision class. Refresh your memory and keep those previously learned dances alive. Learn to play the castanets and dance in the traditional bata de cola skirts in the Clasico/Bata de Cola class!
Madrileña Soledad Barrio will be in town this month to perform during this year’s PUSH Festival. We are happy to announce that she will also be teaching an intermediate level workshop on Jan. 21st at the Karen Flamenco Studio. Register to save your spot (spaces limited). Stay tuned for more details.
