Inaugural Flamenco Festival dances into Metro Atlanta:
What’s better than watching an evening of bold, dramatic flamenco dancing? Easy answer – three weeks of flamenco dancing right here in metro Atlanta!
The first-ever Atlanta Flamenco Festival recently launched and will continue through Nov. 2, featuring a packed lineup of live music, professional dancing, and flamenco classes for those interested in learning the world-famous style of dance. The festival was organized by A Través, Inc., an Atlanta-based nonprofit dedicated to connecting flamenco artists in Spain with local communities in order to spread the artistic form and introduce young people to the music and movement of flamenco. The festival schedule includes evening flamenco classes at the Kalliope Studios Arts Center at The Atlanta Cuban Club in Doraville from Oct. 21 through Oct. 31, and afternoon flamenco classes will also be offered from Oct. 21 through the 31 at the DeKalb School of the Arts.
