Still feeling a little chilled and unmotivated after the last snows have melted? Need a spark to fire up your blood and get the sap running? A nice steamy dose of flamenco might just do the trick.
On Saturday and Sunday, May 13 and 14, Carlota Santana’s Flamenco Vivo will be wrapping up its spring residency at the Kaatsbaan International Dance Center in Tivoli. Beginning at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, a special event called Jardín Andaluz will incorporate a full flamenco performance with wine and supper, accompanied by Spanish classical guitar by David Temple. The Kaatsbaan Playing Field Award will also be conferred during the evening’s festivities. All-inclusive tickets cost $75 per person.
Then, at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, you can enjoy a full flamenco performance without the extra trimmings. Tickets cost $45 for café-table seating; general reserved seating goes for $30 for adults, $10 for student rush and children. To order, visit http://kaatsbaan.org/events.html. The Kaatsbaan International Dance Center is located at 33 Kaatsbaan Road in Tivoli.
