Alberta Culture Days - Sept 30

Join us in the Winspear lobby for Alberta Culture Days this Saturday September 30th where Vancouver’s Stephanie Pedraza will be giving a mini flamenco dance class from 12:10 – 12:40.

Stephanie will demonstrate some basics of flamenco dance including arm work, floreo or hand movement, rhythms and hand clapping as well as marking steps. Participants will have the chance to practice these learned elements in a short choreography. All levels and ages welcome. No experience necessary.

On Saturday, September 30th, the Winspear Centre’s main lobby will come alive with sound and colour, as they present a full day of performances and interactive workshops representing musical traditions from around the world. Performers will be presenting from Edmonton Opera, Edmonton Flamenco Festival’s guest teacher Stephanie Pedraza, Vohon Ukrainian Dance ensemble, Ballet Mexico Lindo, Sangea Academy, and more.

Dancer needed for Art Class - Red Deer

The following is a request from Deirdre Ashenhurst, an art programmer with the Red Deer Museum:

We are hosting a drawing class this summer focused on Flamenco dance. I am looking to hire a dancer interested in dancing for an art class. The class is on Tuesday July 11th from 1-4PM at the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery.

The concept is to have a dancer, dance, pose and rest while people draw. The weekly summer program is designed to expose our visitors to a culturally diverse range of practices, while offering an art activity they can bring home with them.

There would be a fee of $285.00 paid to the dancer, it is not a volunteer request.

For more information please contact me at Deirdre.Ashenhurst@reddeer.ca
