Flamenco at the 2023 Madison International Festival

The first weekend of April was a real treat. My favorite spring cultural festival featured dancers and singers from around the world; Asia, Africa, the Middle East, India, Europe and the Americas. I saw Scottish bagpipers, Chinese dancers, and an art form close to my heart, flamenco.

Tania Tandias does a marvelous job teaching flamenco here in Madison. Her show is so popular that they perform in a larger theater than they did five years ago. Tania and her students capture the passion, musicality and flair of the dance.


El festival internacional de Madison 2023

El primer fin de semana de abril era divertido. El festival cultural internacional de la primavera preferido mío tiene bailarines y músicos de todo el mundo; Asia, Africa, el Medio Oriente, la India, Europa y las Américas. Vi a personas tocando gaitas escocesas, a bailarines chinos y una forma de arte cerca a mi corazón, el flamenco.

Tania Tandias hace un trabajo maravilloso de enseñar flamenco aquí en Madison. Su exhibición está tan bien recibida que ahora usan un teatro más grande que hace cinco años. Tania y sus estudiantes captan la pasión, la musicalidad y el estilo del baile.

  1. It’s great to experience flamenco in Spain, its country of origin, but it’s incredible to experience it outside, let alone in your hometown! I can imagine it was a fiery and passionate performance you witnessed!
