This FREE event is sponsored by the Lincoln Center Support League as part of their Children's Summer Series.
Flamenco Vivo will introduce students to the different palos (styles) of Flamenco as well as some of the accessories like castanets, manton (shawl) and abanico (fan). Before each piece they will give an explanation about the origins and history.
For the interaction program, they will teach students how to do jaleos, which are the words that are used during Flamenco. Afterwards they will ask a couple of groups of students to join them on stage to demonstrate palmas (clapping) and some of the steps to pull all of the moves together.
Join us Wednesdays at 10:30am outside on the Lincoln Center lawn June 15, 22 & 29 and July 13 & 20. Great for children all ages, this series features hour-long presentations of culture, comedy, music and dance. Bring blankets and sunscreen as shade is limited; those with blankets get priority lawn seating.
