As the summer sun starts to slip through our fingers you might be craving a little heat. And while I’ve heard southern Spain is lovely this time of year, I’ve also heard a ticket to get there ain’t cheap. Enter your knight in shining armour (and sexy shoes), the Fall for Flamenco Festival, which for seven years now has been bringing a taste of fiery Spanish culture to Halifax. This year’s fest will engulf you in not only amazing live (and sometimes FREE) performances, but daily workshops for all levels of dancers interested in learning the traditional art of flamenco. The biggest name of this year’s fest is Barcelona’s always-innovative David Romero, an award-winning dancer and household name in international flamenco circles who’ll guide a series of workshops and treat us to the Canadian premier of his solo show Unipersonal, a performance that promises to sweep you off your feet.
