Flamenco For Kids (Ricardo Garcia’s Flamenco Flow Spain)

By | Published on Wednesday 20 August 2014

If you’ve got a child who is interested in music, colour and movement, then you can’t go wrong with a trip to Ricardo Garcia’s ‘Flamenco For Kids’, a short workshop aimed at younger children. It begins with a discussion of what to expect from the coming hour, then Garcia himself emerges, guitar in hand, to introduce the children to the music of flamenco. Before long, he is joined by a brightly clad dancer, and the pair take the children through a number of different moves, which are joined together for a final ‘performance’. The children concentrate very hard, enjoy dressing up in Spanish attire, and are proud to receive their carers’ applause at the end. A lively experience, that had me looking up flamenco classes in my area shortly afterwards!

C, until 25 Aug.
