April marks the month of Semana Santa or Holy Week celebrations throughout Spain where vibrant crowds flock to view the faithful participate in enormous processions winding through city streets. Out of Semana Santa grew a dance tradition called the sevillana, a colourful and exciting choreographed style danced in pairs. The sevillana was originally a courting dance where the man sets out to woo his female partner.
In honor of Semana Santa, we will convert Rhythmix into a Feria of Sevillanas and hold our own Concurso de Sevillanas featuring a public competition of sevillanas for those that have learned the style. All contestants who wish to compete must come with their partner, sign in at the door and wear a badge during the contest. Come in costume or wear your favorite Spanish attire to add to the festivities! Up to 8 couples may dance, the contest will be judged by the audience and the winning couple will be featured onstage at next month's Cafe Flamenco!
In addition to this special Concurso de Sevillanas, Cafe Flamenco will also feature top-knotch dancers from Caminos Flamencos including Emmy-winning dancer and choreographer Yaelisa, Artistic Director Jason McGuire "El Rubio" and special guest singer/dancer Roberto Zamora and veteran dancer Bianca Rodriguez. Refreshing beverages and delicious paella will be available for purchase prepared by Chicha Bistro. With a rotating cast of featured performers each month, Cafe Flamenco offers a unique opportunity for audiences to experience the best and brightest of the flamenco world.
