Flamenco de la Costa is a collaboration of flamenco artists who have lived and studied flamenco on the West Coast of Vancouver Island. Flamenco is the music and dance of the gypsies of southern Europe.
Flamenco de la Costa adds its own Vancouver Island flair to the already complex expressions that flamenco exudes.
The troupe is coming to the Bridge Lounge in Courtenay on Friday for one night only. Doors open at 8 p.m. and the show starts at 8:30. Tickets are $12 at the door.
The show will feature five dancers performing solo and group numbers. They are accompanied by percussionist Thérese Bouchard of Tofino, and renowned flamenco guitarist Gareth Owen from Victoria.
