PSDA News:

Warm up your summer by learning Flamenco Dance in White Rock. This beginning level class is for men and women, ages 11 and up.

The class is free and takes place 11 a.m. to noon Saturdays, June 21 to July19 (except July 5) in the White Rock Activity Center.   

Flamenco dance has become a popular dance form worldwide because of its powerful lines, intense percussive rhythms, and the beautiful traditional melodies that cannot help but inspire movement. It comes from Southern Spain and ties together the cultures of Western Europe, Northern Africa and South Asia in its unique blend of gypsy and folk history. 

The dance this summer is Farruca. Ellen Walton is teaching the class under the sponsorship of the Los Alamos County Recreation Division and the Pajarito Spanish Dance Alliance, a 501(c) 3 non-profit.

The Pajarito Spanish Dance Alliance, (PSDA), enables the preservation and advancement of the art of Spanish dance and music in northern New Mexico through research, teaching and performance. 

For more information, contact Walton at 505.412.0104 or PajaritoSpanishDance@hotmail.com.
