¡Flamenco Para Todos!

On November 6, 2014, the Department sponsored a session of Flamenco dancing with international sensation Auxi Fernández in the University Center Ballroom and open to the entire university community.

After giving a brief demonstration, this incredible bailadora offered a basic workshop on this traditional dance form. Also participating at the event was musician Jay M. Loomis of Stony Brook University, who provided a fascinating scholarly introduction to Flamenco.

The event attracted more than 100 students, faculty and staff and was one of the cultural highlights of the semester.

Thanks very much to Prof. Simón-Alegre, and to our student tutors for organizing such a fantastic event!
