Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana: “Fronteras”

Tickets start at $25 at, 303-987-7845 or the Box Office


Electrifying flamenco dance highlights the dynamic interplay between the dancers and live musicians in a performance that The New York Times says is “solid entertainment.” Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana, one of the premier flamenco companies in the U.S., will be in residence for a week at the Lakewood Cultural Center including performances at 2 p.m., Wednesday, April 17 and 7:30 p.m., Thursday, April 18. Tickets start at $25 and are on sale now at or the Lakewood Cultural Center Box Office, 470 S. Allison Parkway (Wadsworth and West Alameda Avenue).  Both performances feature the full-length “Fronteras” program. A special group rate of $20 per ticket is available for groups of 10 or more for the matinee. For information, call the group sales line at 303-987-7864.

What is stronger: What unites us or what separates us? Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana explores these questions and our natural drive to push beyond obstacles and seek deeper relationships. In the “Fronteras” program dancers are confined within taped “borders” on the floor representing the imposition of boundaries, social and artistic, and the choreography explores how such limits are transcended.

“You never know what you’re going to see, and that’s why audiences keep coming back…There aren’t any stars, or weak links, either. The eight dancers are remarkably equal, each holding attention in a distinctive way” writes Brian Seibert of The New York Times.

Flamenco Vivo has evolved to become an organization rather than only a dance company and continues to be dedicated to arts in education.  During the residency week, the troupe will host a Flamenco Guitar Masterclass which features instruction in flamenco guitar techniques, tonalities and rhythms. The class is open to ages 14 and up and is offered on April 17 at 7 p.m. A Flamenco Movement Workshop will also be offered for active adults over age 55 on April 16 at 11:15 a.m. This class focuses on instruction in rhythmic handclaps, arm movements, body posturing and footwork tailored to the participant’s experience level. Registration and details about these unique opportunities are available at
