Yaelisa, founder of Caminos Flamencos, is considered one of the most gifted Flamenco artists of her generation. She is co-founder and artistic director of the New World Flamenco Festival presented each year at the Irvine Barclay Theatre in Irvine, CA. In 1993, Yaelisa received the Emmy Award or Choreography for a PBS program, and in 2005, Yaelisa and Caminos Flamencos received an Isadora Duncan Dance Award for Best Company Performance.
Guitarist McGuire has been twice nominated for an Isadora Duncan Dance Award; Felix de Lola, flamenco singer from Sevilla, Spain, composes music and verses for flamenco song and theatrical works. Melissa Cruz dances in the U.S. and Spain, and recently danced with Madrid's flamenco dance company, Nache Flamenca, at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.
This colorful performance is free and open to the public. For more information, call 851-1501.
