Time: 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 6, 2007
Place: Black Box Theater, College of the Canyons Performing Arts Center
Contact: Floyd Moos, (661) 362-3386
Event: Prior to performing at the College of the Canyons Performing Arts Center at 8 p.m., dancers of "Noche Flamenca" will keep COC students on their toes in a master class, taught in the adjacent Black Box Theater.
A master class is a class given to students of a particular discipline by an expert of that discipline-usually music, but also painting, drama, or any of the arts. The difference between a normal class and a master class is typically the setup. In a master class, all the students (and often spectators) watch and listen as the master instructs one student at a time.
"Noche Flamenca" was founded in Madrid in 1993 and has become one of Spain's most successful flamenco companies.
Noche Flamenca's vitality, energy and passion have won accolades around the world, with raves and standing ovations in Egypt, Canada, Australia, Portugal and Spain, and now they bring the power of flamenco to Santa Clarita!
