Ritmo Flamenco Performing in Dance Weekend 2017 January 20, 7:00pm at the Fleck Dance Theatre.

Ritmo Flamenco in Dance Weekend 2017!


Ritmo Flamenco opens DanceWeekend17 with the premiere of a new work on Friday, January 20 at 7:00 pm at the Fleck Dance Theatre, 207 Queens Way West, Harbourfront Centre. “Award-winning choreographer/dancer Anjelica Scannura draws inspiration from revolutionary female flamenco dancers in her new work “Mujere Salvaje” (Wild Woman). With an arsenal of emotion at her disposal, she creates with reckless abandon the rhythm, sensuality and drama necessary to tap into the animalistic instincts that comprise the true soul of flamenco. Rhythmic dexterity is at the heart of this percussive piece as well as the exchange of energy between the dancers and musicians as the piece swells to its highest vivacity. The piece will be accompanied by Roger Scannura (guitarist, composer) and will include performances by Artistic Director Valerie Scannura (dance, percussion,vocals), Saikha Baig (percussion) and Ritmo Flamenco’s troupe of professional dancers: Sachi O’Hoski, Rachel James, Terri Chalmers and Krista Raun Spence. Admission is only $10 and no advance tickets are sold. Just get there early to get your seat!
