Dance group headed to Gunnison

Members of the Tablado Dance Company perform in Salt Lake City. The group is coming to Gunnison Thursday, Feb. 6.

GUNNISON — The Casino Star Theatre in Gunnison will feature the Tablado Dance Company of Salt Lake City in a performance that will include singing, dancing and clapping, interwoven with the distinctive rhythms and techniques of Flamenco guitar Thursday, Feb. 6, at 7 p.m. 

Suggested donations for the concert are $10 for adults and $7 for students under 18.  

Tablado Dance Company shares Flamenco—a distinctive dance, guitar and singing of southern Spain—with audiences in Salt Lake City and surrounding communities. They have been featured at the Utah Arts Festival, Monday Nights in Liberty Park, and Excellence Concerts at the Gallivan Center, among others.  

Their Casino Star performance begins after an afternoon workshop at Gunnison Valley Middle School, 271 East 600 South in Gunnison, free of charge. The workshop starts at 3:30 p.m. for an overview of Flamenco traditions, including lessons in footwork and arm movements, some guitar fingering methods, and some history of this warm, energetic region of Spain.

Tickets for the evening concert are available at the Sanpete Messenger Office, 35 South Main Street in Manti.
