Staff report

Pajarito Spanish Dance Alliance will present the third annual Fiesta Primavera at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 21 in the Pajarito Room of historic Fuller Lodge. 

This year’s theme, “La Poesía del Baile” or “The Poetry of the Dance” focuses on the poetry of flamenco music and how it is interpreted by the dance. 

Ellen Walton, “Elena” is the founder of the organization and directs this year’s show in which she and eight of her local students will perform along with guest artists from Taos, Santa Fe and Albuquerque.

Guests include singer La Megue, guitarist Ronaldo Baca, and dancers Sara de Luz, Tamara Baca and Catalina Rio Fernandez. Catalina will be joined by her company, Flamenco Nuevo Mexico.

Flamenco song reflects every joy and sadness in life, often times conveying both extremes in the same song.

“La Poesía del Baile” will take the audience on a fantastic journey to southern Spain through poetry, melody and movement.

Welcome spring with the Pajarito Spanish Dance Alliance. Refreshments follow the show. Reservations can be made at (505) 412-0104 or
