La Luna Roja in RCBC Theater

Fundacion Centro Flamenco is celebrating its 10th year anniversary in the Philippines with a flamenco show entitled "La Luna Roja" (the Red Moon) in RCBC Theater on December 1.
The show is the interpretation of an original story conceptualized by Emma Estrada. A fairytale with a distinctly flamenco flavor, it is the tale of a curse cast upon the daughters of Aydanamara, a beautiful but selfish young woman who broke the heart of a sorceress’s son. The work is directed by Leo Rialp.

Fundacion Centro Flamenco's president and founder Emma Estrada says that the show is a celebration of a decade of flamenco. “The past 10 years have brought a new wave of flamenco students who enjoy blending the traditional soul of flamenco with more modern trends and innovative styles. It is rewarding to know that Centro Flamenco has kept true to its primary objective of laying the groundwork for aspiring professionals and artists in the Philippines, giving them the foundation and the necessary tools towards higher pursuits in the art of flamenco.

Cecile de Joya, vice-president of the school says " Flamenco is a wonderful way to express experiences in life through dance. We have students ranging from little children to adults, from homemakers to professionals who enjoy flamenco both as a form of art and as a form of exercise.”

Fundacion Centro Flamenco is the only school in the country dedicated to flamenco and its professors have studied flamenco extensively in Spain. Emma’s introduction to flamenco began in the early 1990s during her studies in Madrid. Since then she has trained intensively at the prestigious Flamenco school Escuela Amor de Dios in Madrid under various world renowned flamenco dancers. Cecile has also had intensive experience in dance starting with ballet and jazz before turning her attention to the dynamic world of flamenco. Centro’s newest professor, Juan de los Reyes who joined the Centro this year, has had a long illustrious career as a “bailarin” (dancer) of the Ballet National de España. He will be playing Old Jamil, the tale teller in La Luna Roja.
