ALEGRIA DANCE COMPANY AT NOTTE BIANCA

NOTTE BIANCA WITH PURE FLAMENCO AND ALEGRIA

Notte Bianca and Strait Street, Valletta will this year be vibrant with an Andalucian twist as Alegria Dance Company will take the audiences through the passion of what Pure Flamenco is all about.

Alegria Dance Company need no introduction to the Maltese Islands and the majority of the members  have all spent long periods of time in Andalucia learning from great flamenco artists like Andres Peña, Pilar Ogalla, Alicia Marquez, Joaquin Grilo, Antonio el Pipa, Blanca del Rey and many many more.  All members are directly trained by Maria del Mar Moreno from Jerez de la Frontera, Spain who is associated with the Academy.
Apart from offering a spectacular Flamenco performance, this event being held on Saturday 29th September, will provide an added flavour and all those passing through Strait Street will have the opportunity of participating in ‘on the spot’ classes.  The audience will be able to learn how to play the castanets (being provided at the venue), stamp your feet and get the feel of flamenco by joining in the dancing with senior members of the Academy.  Throughout the evening, the Company will be performing to various beats and moods with the use of abanicos (fans), castañulas (castanets), mantones (shawls) and bata de cola (tail skirt).
So make it a date and see you all at Notte Bianca…… Olè !!!!!  PERFORMANCES TO BE HELD AT 6.00PM AND 10.00PM
