Flamenco: ¡Olé!

Program Specialist Jennifer Bacani, LCPC, R-DMT, is a dance/movement therapist who works in both the day program and Mind Matters. Jennifer has been studying flamenco dance for two years. Last month, she brought her flamenco gear, including her bata de cola (her skirt, which was handmade in Spain) and castanets. She performed flamenco dance moves with both groups and showed short video clips of professional flamenco dancers. Jennifer also answered questions about flamenco dance, had participants try the castanets, and taught a short piece of flamenco footwork. Jennifer told everyone that if you enjoy a flamenco performance you are encouraged to yell, “¡olé!”
