- Program Description
La Plaza introduces dance lovers to flamenco, the traditional Gypsy art from southern Spain. Choreographer and dancer Omayra Amaya has melded this ancient art with contemporary jazz and modern dance to create an electrifying mix. Omayra is the great niece of the legendary flamenco dancer Carmen Amaya. She tells La Plaza about growing up in a family of flamenco dancers and about how coming to Boston and performing for American audiences has changed her style of dance.
