(WFLA News Channel 8 / November 11, 2021) Imagine watching a flamenco performance in Old Havana Cuba. Well, that is the type of show the Carrollwood Cultural Center is hosting in Tampa this weekend.

The Carollwood Cultural Center is an organization that brings cultural performances, classes and events to the community to reflect the diversity that the Tampa Bay area has.

“Flamenco is a beautiful dance form. It originally comes from Spain,” Flamenco Tropical Artistic Director Jessica Pacheco said. “There is classical Spanish dance, where you use castanets, shawls, fans. We are actually percussionists.”
