Flamenco: Deseo & Guests
Glasgow based Flamenco Group DESEO brought a taste of Andalucian sunshine to KICs fiesta celebrations. Combining the exciting rhythms of Flamenco with the dramatic & unmistakable sound of Spanish guitar they created a colourful and passionate dance spectacle.
The core members Lorna Cochrane, Derek Cochrane & Jim Opfer perform regularly in and around Glasgow going from strength to strength. At KIC 2005 they performed with guest dancers from Dance With Attitude & The Pena de Glasgow. Also combining with the Flamenco was an exciting salsa performance from Salsa Sabrosa.
Performing today with Deseo, core members of Salsa Sabrosa, Alexis Alonso and Karen Pasi bring you a taste of Latin America with an exciting salsa performance. Established for 10 years, Salsa Sabrosa popularised salsa with their fun packed classes and Salsa Club nights at Havana, Glasgow.
Two years ago Karen & Alexis opened their own dance studios & venue in Scotstoun (Dance with Attitude tel: 0141 5813401) where they run classes in a range of styles from Salsa to Streetdance and put on fabulous cabaret nights with dance performances from both professional and amateur groups.
