Flamenco

With the hard work of visiting scholar K. Meira Goldberg, the Foundation now has a dedicated flamenco project (including Spanish dance generally). Check back with us regularly for news of our own functions as well as for news about other opportunities to see or learn about flamenco in the NYC area.

Below is a sample of events and publications (past and upcoming) which the Foundation has organized, assisted with, or co-sponsored.

Events

•Belén Maya, performing a solo concert of Romnia. – September 24, 2016, The 92nd St. Y (NY, NY). Tickets from $15.

“Romnia explores the two dimensions of Maya’s life: her Gypsy ancestry and her femininity. Romnia, “women” in Romany, is a celebration of Gypsyness—a compassionate, sometimes joyful look at the plight of displaced women, whose laughter and mourning are transformed to beauty in motion.”

•Belén Maya, teaching workshops in Philadelphia, September 17 – 20
