ED2012 Children’s Show Review: Flamenco For Kids (Ricardo Garcia’s Flamenco Flow – Spain)
Essentially an onstage dance workshop bookended by snippets of impressive flamenco, this is a chance for any child with a burgeoning desire to try classic Spanish dancing to fulfil that dream. Kids are taken through some basic steps by kindly guitar player Ricardo Garcia and two professional dancers, before putting all the moves together for a fully-costumed final performance. With a small group of enthusiastic volunteers, it all went fairly smoothly, but it could descend into chaos with a larger crowd. And, whilst seeing children dancing is undeniably sweet, you should probably only buy tickets if you’ve got a child who will definitely enjoy getting up and performing – it’s not quite so much fun watching from the the audience.
C eca, 1-27 (not 3, 14, 21), 1.15pm.
