No strangers to the Irish stage, this popular, fiery and exciting young group are delighted to give a workshop at this Dance day for Cultivate. This workshop will be taught by Joyce Richardson the Company’s director.
It is suitable for those of you who wish to experience the Flamenco fever for yourself. It will outline brief history, rhythm, footwork, arms and have you passionately transported to Seville for an hour. No dance experience necessary, suitable for all ages. Wear comfortable shoes. Shawls will be provided.
Since it originated in 2005 the group have appeared at numerous venues and events in Ireland, and they have starred at festivals including, the Festival of World Cultures in Dun Laoghaire, the National Concert Hall, St. Patrick’s Festival Merrion Square. The Group has an international flavour with artistes not only from Ireland but also from Seville, Jerez, Cadiz and Barcelona in Spain and the multi-cultural mix of over twenty nationalities includes members from Argentina, Hungary, Italy, France, Estonia, Czech Republic, Germany and Poland to name but a few.
More recently the group performed for the Spanish Ambassador to Ireland at the RDS. Thanks to him and his Embassy’s support, along with the Institute Cervantes, Aires Flamencos hosted Ireland’s inaugural Festival of Flamenco in November 2008 at venues throughout Dublin.
