Destino flamenco – a guided group Travel Program to spain
Setting out to capture the depth of flamenco dance and its eternal ties to Spain, this immersive program explores the art form, as well as the human relationships and community that keep flamenco alive and thriving in Andalusia. The Destino Flamenco program is a one-time scheduled event from September 12-22, during La Bienal in Seville; the largest flamenco event in the world. Seville-based flamenco greats La Rhina and Javier Heredia will lead the group. These artists have lived, worked, and taught in Seville and will act as the faculty for this hands-on arts program. Our very own Susana di Palma, will also participate in the program, sharing memories of her time in Andalusia as well as insights into the flamenco art form.
The program is comprised of classes, excursions, tours, and activities. Technical classes that delve into rhythms, palmas, and jaleos are juxtaposed with cultural activities like paella cooking lessons and excursions to more intimate flamenco events in the Gitano community.
Travel arrangements and programming is provided by World Endeavors, a leading provider of educational programs to Spain since 2002. For more information: https://www.worldendeavors.com
