Our second graders attended this performance and we were all very impressed! The costumes, the dancing, and the geography lessons were all fantastic! I felt that this show was better than watching Dancing With the Stars! Our students were mesmerized the whole time. I would definitely book this program again. Thank you!

My Spanish students thoroughly enjoyed the Latin American Carnaval. The show was fast-paced and fun. The Colombian Salsa dancers and Argentine Tango dancers were among their favorites, but all the dancers and singers were energetic and gave a quality performance. I will definitely bring my students again next year.

I have been taking my eighth grade students to see the Hispanic Flamenco Ballet for many years and each year, the show is fantastic. The music is engaging. The cultural information is relevant and captures the student audience's attention. The costumes are beautiful and vibrant. All of my students learned something about Hispanic music and dance from the two wonderful shows that we saw in Queens on Monday, November 17, 2014. The audience participation segment at the end of the show is an opportunity for students to learn a dance which they loved! Thank you for these memorable and entertaining performances. We will be reserving tickets again next year.

As I Spanish teacher in the United States, it is very difficult to find places that display the true culture. The Hispanic Flamenco it is a refreshing and amazing experience for our students. I've been attending the show twice a year for 4 years. Over 300 students from my school have attended and I have never heard anything but "that was the best field trip ever". Thank you for the experience.

I really enjoyed this show!! My husband is from Mexico and we speak Spanish at home, so I loved that this opportunity is available to schools to bring their students to get an authentic look at dance and music from other countries! Great job!! We would love to do this again.

It was a pleasure for us to be served by the Flamenco Company Ballet. Last year my Spanish speakers students from Booker T. Washington SHS could attend to the Flamenco ballet function. They gave us a considerable discount, also we felt very well treated. They gave us extra time for setting up the payments and tickets. Mr. Brian was very attentive and professional. We want to say thank you for all their support and contribution to promote our students' interest and passion toward Hispanic heritage and culture.

I recently had the opportunity to participate as a volunteer at a Hispanic Flamenco Ballet event which was for middle school and high school students in the Atlanta area. There was a full house at this event, and it was a beautiful production with talented dancers who solicited audience participation numerous times to engage the audience. It was a highly educational and wonderful production. I participated along with a group of volunteers from Kohl's Associate in Action program. I would definitely recommend this organization to others, and I would be happy to participate again in the future as a volunteer.

Sincerely,

The Miami Beach Senior Center had the pleasure to attend the Latin American Carnaval and Corazon De Espana shows more than once and each time our seniors had an amazing time. The combination of the live music, instruments, dance, costumes and most importantly the interaction with a younger crowd made it an unforgettable and enjoyable event. We can't thank enough the Arts & Dance company for providing us this great opportunity and wonderful experience.
