Flamenco | Visit Nottinghamshire

Friday 29th July | Peggy’s Skylight | 6pm - 7pm and 8.30pm - 10.30pm (two shows available) | Tickets: £12

From the deepest roots of flamenco, this show is born from the tradition of flamenco culture shaped by the luminosity of the alegrías, the depth of the taranto, the rhythms of the tangos or the jondura of the soleá.

Passion, strength and blood in perfect harmony with the elegance and the sensuality, is delighted by the most authentic flamenco dance. The flight of her hands brings freedom and her feet tapping connects us with the earth, with the root.
