Alice Blumenfeld - ABREPASO's Tablao Flamenco

Enjoy an Evening of Passionate Flamenco Music and Dance Live at Nighttown! Oberlin Professor of Dance and Company.

Featuring: Alice Blumenfeld (dancer), Marija Temo (flamenco guitar and vocals), Wendy Clinard (dancer), & Liam Smith (percussion/cajón).

Enjoy flamenco in it's most intimate, fiery, passionate, and traditional setting--a tablao. Through their mastery of improvisation the artists express the full range of emotions in the complex and mesmerizing flamenco musical styles, building off each other's sparks to draw the audience into this Spanish art form.

Ms. Temo is currently Guitar Chair and faculty at the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music.

Alice Blumenfeld is a U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts and a Fulbright recipient in Dance. She fell in love with flamenco at age 12, and since then it has been the driving force in her life, founding ABREPASO Flamenco in 2016 and currently faculty at Oberlin College. She has toured nationally with Flamenco Vivo and performed as a soloist with their New York-based company, and Blumenfeld has performed internationally in Germany and Spain. Her choreography has been commissioned by The Kennedy Center for Performing Arts, The National Hispanic Cultural Center, and several universities.
