It is important to keep the art and dances from old customs alive for younger generations to educate themselves, said Lisa Masters, 48, a Spanish major.
Professor of intermediate Spanish Maria Ugalde’s class was treated to a performance and lesson from Sarah Parra, a former LBCC student and flamenco dance teacher was invited by Masters to demonstrate the Flamenco dance for a class of about 30 students in T1317 on Wednesday, May 14.
Aside from showing students the moves, Parra taught them about the origins of the dance.
Flamenco gives people the vibe and essence of Spain, where it originated, said Maria Ugalde, an intermediate Spanish teacher at the LAC.
