Fire up for flamenco workshops

Local residents will be able to enjoy the fire of flamenco music when Spanish dancers and singers present workshops in Coolum and Noosaville next month.

Dancers Sebastian Sanchez and Tomas Arroquero and singer Olayo Jimenez are visiting from Spain to perform in Flamenco Fire at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre in September.

Some rehearsals of the production are taking place on the Sunshine Coast, providing a unique opportunity for a series of workshops.

All workshops will provide an introduction to flamenco and are suitable for students with no flamenco dance or singing experience, or a beginner’s understanding of the art form.

Workshop participants will also be treated to live guitar accompaniment by Flamenco Fire creator Andrew Veivers, who won the Queensland Recording Association’s Sunnie Award for best album (folk, ethnic and other).

With the support of Arts Queensland and the Sunshine Coast Regional Council through the regional arts development fund the workshops are offered at a reduced $25 for each workshop.

Bookings are essential and can be made online at www.redchair.com.au or by phoning 5473 9498.
