From Spain we present TABLAO FLAMENCO by dancer and choreographer Adva Yermiyahu. It is a sweeping, moving and energetic Flamenco show combining singing, guitar and dancing, presenting the art of Flamenco in its authentic form, as it is currently performed in Spain.
On February 9th and 10th we will be hosting these specials performances. The shows on Saturday evening are $50pp. The shows are at 7pm & 9pm, and include tapas and drinks. Space is limited for these shows, and reservations are required. The show on Sunday is at 1pm and is free to the public. We will have a place for donations, as our friends came a very far distance from Spain to perform for us! This is an experience that you do not want to miss!
"A flamenco dancer that stops the street and creates a huge traffic-jam because you just can't take your eyes off her."
