Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana invites you to experience the cultural richness and traditions of flamenco with a holiday flair. Become a part the infectious rhythms of the palmas, feel the deep force of the taconeo and revel in the resonant cries of the cante. Allow expert artists to bring you a colorful and lively performance, full of the energetic music and intense dance that reveal a glimpse into a life full of pride, passion, honor, love, and sorrow. These universal themes along with Flamenco’s diverse origins touch on the many ethnicities and histories of one of the world’s richest expressions of folklore! With influences from North Africa and South America, the Gypsies and the Jewish peoples, this vibrant and culturally diverse art form will keep you moving in your seat and get you into the holiday spirit!

Events for Youth & Families programs are made possible through generous support from the Estate of Pearl S. Reuillard in memory of her parents Yetta and Louis Schwartz.
