Alegria Dance Company presented ‘El Camino Flamenco’ showcasing a journey from India to Spain and how Flamenco is evolving in today’s world, fusing it with Maltese Folk Music.

The performance, held in the IIT Campus Theatre, was very well attended and appreciated by the enthusiastic audience, particularly when the Maltese dancers, to the surprise of those present, ended their number with a flamenco choreography to a popular Bollywood song, bringing the whole theatre to its feet in a spectacular jumping ovation.
