At the Mazarron Festival de Baile, co-ordinated by Murcia Dance College at the Camposol Fiestas held Sunday June 27, over fifty talented dancers competed at various levels. In the Adult Division the Sevillanas Club captured 1st and 2nd places. The awards are significant recognition for this popular amateur flamenco dance company.
Teacher and artistic director, Raquel Peña says she is delighted and proud of her troupe; especially in view of the fact that it has been performing for little over a year. Twelve members competed in two different dances; an Alegrias and a special choreographic Sevillanas.
The dancers are non-Spanish making the award particularly praiseworthy. Wendy, Janet, Adele, Jackie, Ann, Linda, Val and Joan are British. Rainer is Austrian; Tina and Sergio are Swiss whilst Valda is from Latvia.
Over fifty performers and enthusiastic followers from the Costa Blanca/Calida areas joined the dancers on an especially charted coach for the trip to Mazarron and able to join in the celebrations of the winners achievements. The Sevillanas Club Flamenco dancers are able to perform at registered charity-related events. Information is available from 630 689 431.
