Flamenco Flashmob Makes Its Presence Known in Havana

HAVANA – A flamenco flashmob filled the heart of the Cuban capital over the weekend, thanks to Spain’s Antonio Gades Foundation, which took this traditional dance form into the streets of the city that the famous dancer loved and the country he called “his life’s port.”

About 200 people gathered Sunday between two iconic Havana landmarks, the Gran Teatro and the Capitol, to dance the “Fuego,” a dance that Gades made famous on stages around the world.

The crowd exceeded expectations and participants dressed in flamenco clothing, proving that “Spain loves Cuba and Cuba loves Spain,” Eugenia Eiriz, Gades’s widow and the head of the foundation, told EFE.

Foundation representatives traveled to Havana for the 26th International Ballet Festival, where they will participate in performances and workshops.

The dancers will perform an excerpt from “Fuego” (1989).

“It’s part of a Sevillian dance and we decided to take it out of the classroom, where we were going to work with the professionals, and ask for the collaboration of Spanish dance schools in Cuba,” Eiriz said.
