American Bolero Dance Company presents "Tablao Flamenco" 2013 Spring Season Opener
Get ready to shout a resounding “Olé”! On Friday March 15th at 8:30 pm, American Bolero Dance Company kicks off the 2013 Spring season of its production, Tablao Flamenco, at The Chian Federation in Astoria. This popular Queens, NY-based performance series, now celebrating its 5th year, features live Flamenco and other styles of Spanish dance and music. Presented in a cabaret-type format and atmosphere, guests may enjoy food and drinks provided by CF Catering, while being entertained by some of the finest local and international talent in the industry, resulting in an experience of being in a flamenco club (or “tablao”) in Spain.
Since its premiere in November 2008, Tablao Flamenco has established itself as a steady cultural fixture in the borough, and garnered recognition and praise from both audience members and the media. The series has been hailed as a “dazzling spectacle”, “incredibly intense”, and “artfully performed”, and its world-class dancers, singers and musicians described as “impressive”, with “outstanding skill”.
The March 15th season opener will certainly be no exception to such acclaim. GABRIELA GRANADOS, American Bolero Dance Company’s Artistic Director/Founder and creator of the Tablao Flamenco series, heads a phenomenal cast that includes dancers ROSA OLYMPIA ESTRELLA, XIANIX BARRERA and ERIKA de JULIA, singers ALFONSO CID and AURORA REYES, guitarists RAPHAEL BRUNN and JED MILEY, and the BALLET ESPAÑOL DE GABRIELA GRANADOS.
All “Tablao Flamenco” 2013 performances are supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council. This series is also made possible (in part) by the Queens Council on the Arts, with public funding from the New York State Council on the Arts Decentralization Program, and with support from The JP Morgan Chase Foundation.
Admission: Adults $25; Seniors $20; Children (under 12 years old) $17. Food and drinks available for order a-la-carte from CF Catering. Dinner seating starts at 6:30 PM.
