Flamenco Rosario proudly presents an In-Studio performance featuring two dancers who graduated from their Professional Training Program, in Kitsilano on Friday, May 11, 2018.

The performance will feature Nanako Aramaki, one of Flamenco Rosario’s long-time company dancers who has been based in Europe since 2011. Since her graduation in 2005, she has studied extensively in Spain and has toured, taught and performed across Canada, Mexico, Germany, Austria, Denmark, Spain, Eastern Africa and the United Kingdom. Dancing alongside Nanako Aramaki will be Yurie Kaneko, a recent graduate who has been dancing professionally with Flamenco Rosario since 2013. The two dancers will showcase their choreographies under the mentorship of Flamenco Rosario’s Artistic Director, Rosario Ancer. The performance will also feature Musical Director, Victor Kolstee and guest singer, Stephanie Pedraza.

Presenting a new generation of flamenco dancers in an intimate setting of the old Centro Flamenco studio, the presentation will be fun, informative and interactive with a Q + A session following the performance.
