Make sure to check Reading is Fundamental for post-show or pre-show activities to engage children even more in the world of the art and culture of flamenco from Spain.
La Candela Company's school program includes flamenco demonstration shows that educate children about the art and culture of flamenco from Spain. The program is tailored to schools' needs and the desired duration. It can range from a simple flamenco dance and music demonstration to educational shows where children learn where flamenco comes from, about its rhythms, ways to mark flamenco rhythm, and how feelings are expressed in flamenco. La Candela Company also offers flamenco field trips that can be presented in English or Spanish.
Diversity & self-esteem
The shows help children understand how diverse arts and culture are in different countries and appreciate that there is much more out there yet to learn. They start to understand that different is good too, and that you can indeed express yourself through arts. Every show includes interaction with children, in a form of pulling volunteers to learn basic flamenco dance steps, or engaging them by asking questions about what they already know about flamenco or about what they feel watching the performance.
Educational flamenco shows are great for school's International Day, Spanish Heritage Month, Cultural Nights, Spanish Day, History Day, International Night, School Festivals, Arts Day, Cultural Day, Passport Day.
