The New Year Brings Esmeralda Enrique Spanish Dance Company to New Heights and New Audience
Following on the heels of Esmeralda Enrique Spanish Dance Company's (EESDC) 30th anniversary year where its production Aguas/Waters was named one of the top five dance shows of 2012 by NOW Magazine, the early months of 2013 are full of excitement and possibility for Esmeralda and the company, which brings the finest flamenco and Spanish Classical Dance to Toronto stages.
Here is what lies ahead:
March 9-13, 2013 - Choreographic Residency
It has been a long time dream for EESDC to bring a Spanish master artist to create a choreographic residency in Toronto. Manuel Betanzos, one of Spain's most beloved choreographers and directors, will come to Toronto to lead dance workshops with an attentive eye to personal choreography. A further happy outcome of this rare opportunity will be the creation of a new work for the company that opens the Toronto Season: Portales, April 25-28.
Workshops will be held from March 9-13 at the Academy of Spanish Dance at 401 Richmond Street W., Suite B104. For full details call 416-595-5753 or visit www.flamencos.net
March 20-24, 2013 - A Night in Madrid
Company dancers Esmeralda Enrique and Paloma Cortés perform Spanish Classical dance with the celebrated Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra and Chamber Choir for A Night in Madrid featuring the Iberian flavoured music of composer Luigi Boccherini who made his home in Spain. His work is infused with the sounds of Spanish and gypsy folk music.
March 20-24 at Trinity-St. Paul's Centre, 427 Bloor Street West, Toronto, ON, M5S 1X7. Performance times: Wed at 7pm; Thurs-Sat at 8pm; Sun at 3:30pm. For tickets and info visit tafelmusik.org
