The Fountain Theatre presents Forever Flamenco! with Yaelisa y Caminos Flamencos in “Flamenkeando”— With only 78 seats in four rows, the Fountain is the perfect place to experience the fire andpassion of flamenco. This month’s lineup includes dancers Manuel Gutierrez, Yaelisa and Devon LaRussa, who offers a hybrid of contemporary/flamenco style; singer/dancer Oscar Valero and singer El Grillo, both from Spain; guitarist Jason McGuire (“El Rubio”); and percussionist Joey Heredia.
Caminos Flamencos was founded in the San Francisco Bay Area by Emmy Award-winning dancer and choreographer Yaelisa. The mission of Caminos Flamencos is to create and present contemporary, traditional and theatrical dance programs showcasing artists from Spain and the U.S., which reflect the changing face of flamenco in the 21st century. Their programs seek to preserve the legacy of Spain’s rich artistic heritage, and bring them to people of all backgrounds, enriching the lives of people with Spanish and Hispanic ancestry, and of the community at large.
If you were lucky to be at our fabulous jaw-dropping Forever Flamenco at the Ford in June, you experienced the artistry of Yaelisa and guitar master Jason McGuire in action. The stars not only shone bright overhead on that hot summer night. Stars twinkled backstage as well, as Yaelisa was visited by TV/Film actress and flamenco fan Eva Longoria.
