The November edition of The Dance Centre’s popular Discover Dance! noon hour series features the art of flamenco with a performance by Flamenco Rosario. A mainstay of Vancouver’s flamenco scene for over 25 years, the company honours the authentic traditions of flamenco while nurturing the evolution of the art form through artistic experimentation, crossing boundaries of history and cultures. In Nuevo, Artistic Director Rosario Ancer teams up with choreographer Karen Lugo to create new and exciting dances which deconstruct the art form and challenge the way we perceive flamenco. Joining Musical Director and guitarist Victor Kolstee on stage will be singer Stephanie Pedraza, and Flamenco Rosario dancers Melanie Meyers, Afifa Eidher, Meghan Asher and Nevena Boskic.

Flamenco Rosario holds a mandate to develop dance, music works and dance artists in both the authentically traditional and contemporary innovative styles of flamenco, through performances, workshops and professional training across Vancouver. Under the direction of Artistic Director Rosario Ancer and Musical Director Victor Kolstee, the company was founded in 1989. As an interpreter of flamenco dance, Ancer is interested in the continuing growth and evolution of the art form. The company explores the possibilities of flamenco by crossing boundaries of history and culture, incorporating dancers from other dance traditions, international dance artists, musicians and vocalists into the development of new work. Ongoing activities include the popular Cuadro Flamenco series featuring traditional dance styles, the Vancouver International Flamenco Festival showcasing local and national and international guest artists, and Mainstage performances allowing for artistic experimentation. www.flamencorosario.org
