¡Olé! Flamenco

Foreword Review — Jan / Feb 2011

Flamenco, the “dramatic Spanish art of song, dance, and music,” originally practiced in Europe is brought to life here by a dance company in Santa Fe, New Mexico. This book introduces young readers to the history of this tradition, and to the dancers, musicians, young people, and families who enjoy the art in formal performance and in informal gatherings. The book is generously illustrated with photographs. For ages seven to eleven.
