Ballet Flamenco La Rosa performs in Fuerza Flamenca at South Miami Dade Cultural Arts Center, a showcase of the breathtaking art of Flamenco, in a mesmerizing event of pure Flamenco music and dance in a range of rhythms and styles that will take you through dramatic, soulful, joyous and sensual moods with the passionate vocals, exquisite guitar, electrifying footwork and all of the grace and beauty that has made Flamenco so loved by audiences throughout the world.
Ballet Flamenco La Rosa’s magnificent company of some of the finest local professional Flamenco dancers and musicians from Spain, Latin America and the U.S. collaborate for this powerful presentation.
Born in Medieval Andalucía, Southern Spain in the Middle Ages, when Europeans, Arabs, Jews, Gypsies and Africans co-existed in a Golden Age of art and learning, this art form has fascinated writers, poets, composers, painters, sculptors, choreographers and audiences for centuries and developed into one of the most respected and loved music and dance forms, evolving to the highest level of technique and artistic expression.
Flamenco’s earthy power, spellbinding athleticism, subtle nuances and explosive energy make it at once sensual and spiritual, raw and refined and an unforgettable theatrical experience.
