Lively Spanish music and flamenco dancers were in the entertainment spotlight at the Greenbush Public Library on Wednesday forenoon, March 8, 2017. Performing were six very talented entertainers from the Twin Cities area known as “A Touch of Spain”

Flamenco is a style of dancing that is strongly rhythmic and involves actions, as clapping the hands and stamping the feet. It also includes instrumental or vocal music originating in southern Spain performed by itself or as an accompaniment to flamenco dancing. 

The presentation was well received by those in attendance, including Mara Gust’s Spanish class and GMR’s fourth and fifth-grade students.

“A Touch of Spain” was sponsored by the Northwest Regional Library and the Clean Water Land and Legacy Amendment.
