Festival Flashmob dancers in 2016 - at the AGA and the Winspear lobby
The Edmonton Flamenco Festival created a flashmob for our 2016 – 17 season.
This year’s festival flashmob was a choreography por tangos created by Jane Ogilvie involving live flamenco dance, song, and guitar. A group of local flamencos spent the fall learning their parts and came together in November to perform the flashmob in the Winspear lobby before an ESO evening and on stage at our fall fundraiser performance “Flamenco at the AGA”.
The group went on to teach the choreography, song, and guitar to a new group of flashmobbers in February 2017 for performances leading up to the March festival.
Special thanks to Jane Ogilvie who donated both her choreography and time for 6 weeks of classes to teach it in the Fall of 2016.
