Edmonton Flamenco Festival Flashmob

After two years of flashmobbing, we’ve decided it’s time to pass the torch on to other members of the community and retire the festival flashmob. It’s been a great two years of performing at various venues and events throughout the city. We finished this year with a bang at festival sponsor MarrMac Dance‘s 50th Anniversary celebration.



We are so grateful for the continued support of MarrMac Dance. A vibrant force in the Edmonton dance scene since 1968, MarrMac offers a great line up of classes for all ages. Click here for a look at their current studio offerings.

Here are some pics from our flashmob adventures. Thanks to all the local flamencos who came out to perform with us.
