ABOUT THE SHOW
Join us for an evening of grace, beauty, and technique, as we present two distinct forms of dance in one program.
Jhoely Triana Flamenco performs Arboles (Trees)
Featuring live flamenco music and dance, Arboles (Trees) uses the metaphor of trees to represent how we must honour our roots and gather strength from our past to reach new heights so that we can share our lived experiences with our community and spread the seeds of empathy and compassion. Colombia-born, Vancouver based Flamenco dancer Jhoely Triana is joined by singer Pat Keith and guitarist Peter Mole, both of whom have been performing Flamenco for over 25 years.
