Saturday, Feb. 1 | 7:30 p.m. | Hansen Theatre

Pride. Passion. Love. Sorrow.
Flamenco dancers and musicians bring heat to our winterized hearts

On Saturday, Feb. 1, as winter digs its heels in deep, a troupe of Spanish flamenco dancers will transform Hansen Theatre at MSUM to a Spanish plaza filled with sunshine and heat.

Flamenco Vivo-Carlota Santana brings the flamenco art form here through MSUM’s Cheryl Nelson Lossett Performing Arts Series. It is the third event in the 2019-2020 season.

Carlota Santana co-founded Flamenco Vivo in 1983 with the mission of using flamenco not only as an art form but as a way to build bridges between cultures. Santana’s flamenco dancers and musicians exuberantly and passionately display the diverse influences that shaped this art form including contributions from Gypsy, Judaic, Arabic, Spanish and Latino cultures.

Designated “The Keeper Of Flamenco” by Dance Magazine, Santana received La Cruz De la Orden al Merito Civil from the Government of Spain in recognition of her commitment to creating new works and developing young artists.

To purchase tickets to the performance, go to or call the MSUM Box Office at (218) 477-2271 Monday through Friday from noon to 4 p.m. Tickets are $28 for adults, $24 for seniors and $12 for students with student ID. Tickets are also available at the door if not sold out.
