“No music better represents the story of an outcast, vagabond people, without home and patrimony but with a culture so rich it’s inspired poets to call it ‘a way of life.’ More than mere dance, Flamenco is a trinity of throbbing guitar rhythms, pounding dance and songs of lament and joy — all born from the struggle and joy of Andalusian gypsies who, with abandon and strength, celebrate the vibrancy and pathos of life. Not for the faint of heart.”

— from the Viva Flamenco website

Viva Flamenco is a group of dancers, singers and musicians founded in 2004 by Antonia Messina, bringing the world of Flamenco to the tri-State area in places as diverse as theaters and cafes to school performances, festivals, museums and even the Bronx Zoo.
