The Spanish Centre – Feria de Abril
The Spanish Centre – La Feria de Abril 2014. It was the 12th of April 2014 and this typical Seville Festival was organised at the Spanish Centre, Acacia Ridge. It was a great success as Spanish foods including Jamon Serrano, Quesos and tapas (Patatas Bravas, Chorizo, Gambas al ajillo and more) were on display and available for purchase. There were also Vinos Tintos (Spanish Red Wines), Cervezas and Sangria to wash the food down with. The foosball table got a great work out and so did the dance floor.
Griffith University’s School of Linguistics was present and offering information about their Spanish courses for those who want to learn Español.
But the highlight of the night was when the show started as 3 fiery and passionate Flamenco dancers came out and delivered a spectacular display of traditional Flamenco dancing and singing. Flamenco Del Mar (lead by Marina Tamayo) and their guitarist demonstrated vivid red coloured dresses, castañetas and classical Spanish guitar. They brought the entire club to their feet and stomping their heels, clapping their hands. The party got hot, real hot and it was time for another cerveza. Olé!!!
