It’s a great week at the Cowichan Centre for Performing Arts.

It’s a great week at the Cowichan Centre for Performing Arts.

British Columbia is a long, long way from southern Spain but Flamenco Rosario is attempting to waft the breath of the legendary gypsy dancers to the big stage of the Cowichan Theatre with a show on Saturday, Sept. 30, starting at 7:30 p.m.

Dancer Rosario Ancer is attempting to boost interest in the dance style in Vancouver by creating a troupe where a new generation of dancers can flourish, and audiences can soak up part of Spain’s rich culture.

It showcases the excitement of the guitar music, and the emotions of the dance itself.

Tickets are $36 each. Or buy the whole dance series of three events for $95. Call the Cowichan Ticket Centre at 250-748-7529 or go online to cowichanpac.ca to reserve.
