Flamenco! Flamenco!
Ricardo Garcia (Flamenco Flow UK & Spain)

The stage goes black at the start of the show and, I wonder, where is the kids' show?! All quiet. A lone guitarist is bathed in red light. And then, accompanied by his two dancers, Ricardo Garcia treats us to his new composition. I was completely caught by surprise ĘC a moving, emotional, intensely passionate flamenco almost brought me to tears, for the short time it was on. Then - confusion over - the kids' show begins! And what fun it is, for children and parents alike; it is clear that everyone is enjoying the lesson in flamenco dancing thoroughly, one dad, in particular, taking it very seriously. A great children's show; I can't wait to see the one for grown-ups!
