Description

PEÑA FLAMENCA ROMERO is a new performance-presentation-social initiative that focuses on flamenco in a very intimate setting. PEÑA means "club" therefor, this is a place of community. An "open-door" to meet new or reaquaint with people who share the same passion for flamenco as you do.

Curated by Carmen Romero, Artistic Director of THE SCHOOL OF FLAMENCO DANCE ARTS; the format will change from time to time, inviting artists to perform or give special talks. As well, we will present movies, have discussions or a tapas fair. Who knows, it's all apart of exploring all things related to flamenco.
