At 2:30, now that your pulse is up and creativity is flowing, have fun in a workshop where you will make a beautiful fan, using colorful papers and creative decorations.

This highly celebrated company has explored the Ida y Vuelta styles of flamenco – an assimilation of Latino songs and rhythms by developed by flamenco artists in the late 1800s. The show begins with traditional flamenco, and includes demonstration and use of castanets, palmas (handclapping), and footwork sounds. It moves on to Ida y Vuelta styles, such as tangos, guajiras and rumba, pointing out what elements come from Latin cultures, and how the clave rhythm was adapted into flamenco.
