In this fun and interactive show for children 2- 8 years (approximately Pre-School- Year 3) the audience watches, participates in and learns about flamenco music and dance. The show takes the children and their families/educators on a journey with Ruby as she learns about flamenco, its history, culture, artistic aspects, musical instruments, dance, rhythms and expression. They will be ‘magic-ed’ from Australia to Spain to discover the origins of flamenco and join in clapping, stamping, singing, dancing and more.
