In an evening of authentic live flamenco, Julia Alcantara will lead a cast of three musicians and more than six dancers in an enthralling evening of flamenco at its finest. The cast includes life-long dancers Jhon “El Nino” from Caracas, Venezuela and Andrea Prieto from Sevilla, Spain. 

In a series of music numbers, solos and group dances, the team will present an evening of exciting footwork, mesmerizing music and dazzling costuming. The well-equipped venue promises that none of the intensity or talent will be lost. Every drop of sweat and the fascinating communication between musicians and dancers will be illustrated the way only live flamenco can.

The proceeds from this show will raise money for Flamenco Fever’s coveted invitation to produce an entire concert in the Seminario de Flamenco in Malaga, Spain this summer. The Latino Cultural Center is located at 2600 Live Oak St. in Dallas. Visit for tickets and more information.
