Flamenco a las 8

An Evening of Music and Dance with Melissa Cruz and Guest Artists

The dynamism and allure of flamenco come alive on stage in an evening of dance and music with Melissa Cruz. Joined by her cast of seasoned professionals and dedicated studio dancers, Cruz presents a diverse program of dances, expressing the full spectrum of human emotion. Deep cante jondo juxtaposes with light-hearted cante chico.

The pulse of the cajón drum and the stirring poly-rhythms of heelwork weave and unravel to create tension and release so emblematic of flamenco. A guitar’s rapid picado and thundering rasgueado meet articulating arms and fingers of bailaoras as they bring forth other-worldly inspirations. Be moved by an intense and passionate evening of Bay Area flamenco culture with its zeal for community, respect for the art form, and deep emotion, hallmarks of this beautiful tradition that continue to generate new inspiration for itself and its audiences.

Doors open at 7:00pm with sangria and cocktails available for purchase from the Rhythmix bar and paella for purchase from Saffron Paella World.
