Zorongo Flamenco Troupe To Perform At UW-River Falls

February 12, 1999

The University of Wisconsin-River Falls Wyman Series will be ending the year with a flamenco flare.

The Zorongo Flamenco Dance Theatre will perform on March 4 at 8 p.m. in the North Hall Auditorium at UW-River Falls. The show will consist of traditional flamenco dance and flamenco ballet.

Traditional flamenco dance tells the story of Gypsies from Southern Spain and their struggle. "It is about their passion for the music and the dance," said Sheila Terryll, administrative director at Zorongo Flamenco Dance Theatre.

The Zorongo Flamenco Dance Theatre is one of the premier American flamenco dance theatres. Located in Minneapolis, they offer lessons, lectures and performances on Spanish music, literature, dance and history.

The Wyman Series selects one dance production a year, and flamenco is new to the series, said Kaye Schendel, Wyman Series coordinator. "People, students especially, should take advantage of these arts performances while they are this affordable,"

Admission is free for students and $5 each for the general public. Tickets will be available at the door one hour before the performance.
