This performance was a celebration of the first Flamenco Alhambra which made its debut in March of 2009. It is also the anniversary of my first appearance under the auspices of this series under the direction of William Yee.
Formerly, the title of the organization had been the Center for the Visual and Performing Arts. This was later changed to Alhambra Performing Arts Center which was more appropriate. Mr. Yee decided to present these performances each year and in some instances twice a year. It made the first program in March of 2009 a special event and was received by the public with much enthusiasm. It has been a labor of love devoted to the dance art of Spain, moreover to the Andalusian form, Flamenco. Come and enjoy the variety and scope of this art which is like no other! Beauty and feelings expressed in the tensions and spontaneity of the music and movement, profundity and dynamism which it offers. Ole!
