Already famous for his delicious and varied menu of tapas, Churrasqueria and other authentic Spanish/South American specialties, the Pica Tapas Bar's proprietor Carlos Vinas has recently introduced a weekly presentation of Flamenco dancing every Saturday evening at 9:00 p.m..
Initially dubious as to whether local dancers would be able to bring to the stage the passion, romance and excitement of Iberian dance traditions, I went with lowered expectations, prepared to see at best a second-rate performance. To my pleasant surprise, however, Señor Carlos Vinas has brought the same commitment to authenticity in training his troupe of dancers that he exhibits in his kitchen each day.
Presented on an outside stage in the Restaurants back court, the Pica's small dance company offer a spirited and sensuous floor show of steamy flamenco numbers.
While performing only one night a week at present, special performances for small groups can be arranged on alternate nights by prior arrangement.
Like Carlos' food, his dancers are not the be missed!
