I have recently moved this past year to Wisconsin and have had the opportunity to meet and work with a few of the flamenco teachers, performers, and students in the community. I would like to meet and/or reconnect with all of you and create an opportunity for my out of state students and I to jam with you and the other flamencos in the area.

What to bring: Pot luck (bring a dish to share) and bring your guitars, dance shoes, cajons, and vocal cords
