flamenco

Carolina Lugo is a professional flamenco dancer. In fact, she’s the fourth generation of women flamenco dancers in her family. So when Lugo had a baby girl, she knew that she wanted her to follow in the tradition of her mothers before her. Today, Lugo and her grown-up daughter Carolé Acuña perform together as Ballet Flamenco, bringing the traditional Flamenco dance form, not only to the Bay Area, but to national and international audiences. KALW's Hana Baba sat down with Lugo and Acuña to learn more.

LUGO: The magic that happens on stage with both of us -- the energy we draw from one another -- can't be explained. But it's there.
