Calo Flamenco brings torrid dance style to de Jong Concert Hall March 23

Phoenix-based Calo Flamenco, a professional flamenco ensemble with more than 15 talented dancers and musicians, will present its hit show “Levanto” Tuesday, March 23, at 7:30 p.m. in Brigham Young University’s de Jong Concert Hall.

The group is one of the largest professional flamenco ensembles in the United States. Tickets prices range from $10 to $15, or $8 with a student ID, and can be purchased online at byuarts.com, by phone at (801) 422-4322 or in person at the Harris Fine Arts Center Ticket Office.

Founded in 2003 by artistic director Martín Gaxiola, Calo Flamenco combines intense choreography techniques by Gaxiola and music composed or arranged by Chris Burton Jácome to create a superior audio and visual experience. In Spanish, “calo” has several meanings: “heat” (short for “calor”) and “mannerism or style of communication” — all of which describe the essence of Calo Flamenco, according to Gaxiola.

The 90-minute program will open with “Por Sentimiento” (With Feeling) and “Me Levanto” (I Rise Up). The program also features “Esperanza” (Hope), “Pensamientos” (Thoughts), “Ritmo-Chanix” and “Sin Ti” (Without You), among others.

Gaxiola has studied flamenco in the United States and Spain with renowned artists including Antonio Granjero, Immaculada Ortega, Dini Roman and Lydia Torea. He has toured the United States with the National Theatre of Performing Arts and can be seen in two PBS television specials.

For more information about the concert, contact Jeffrey Martin at (801) 422-6340 or visit www.caloflamenco.com.
