Los Angeles' Herencia Flamenca has earned a reputation as one of the West Coast's leading flamenco ensembles, blending a respect for the roots of flamenco with innovative style. The company puts on a show with performers representing flamenco traditions from across Spain, including two very talented and very different dancers originally from Barcelona: company co-founder Yolanda Arroyo and veteran performer Dolores Gimenez, making her U.S. debut after decades of success as a dancer and choreographer in Spain. The company's other co-founder, guitarist Paco Arroyo, hails from Cordoba, while guitarist Vicente Gelo comes from Seville, and singer Sonia Berbel and guitarist Fernando Mejias were both born in Madrid. All these and more will unite for a show that embodies the soul of flamenco, both elegant and explosive. Learn More

This was a lot like college football, vs. pro ball, for me. More exciting, more little things that almost went wrong, and you could see the work these people had put into the production more. Not as polished as some Nutcrackers I have seen, but so much heart! This was an unexpected delight. Thank you.
There is no better way to get into the holiday spirit than to share the magic of Clara and her Nutcracker! Ballet Petit Performing Arts Center’s production of The Nutcracker is a delightful, family-friendly version of the traditional holiday ballet.
This year’s production comes complete with all-new choreography, and guest artists April McLeod and Sven Toorvald as the Sugarplum Fairy and her Cavalier, Patrick Loyd as the Nutcracker Prince, Ben Gleichauf as the Mouse King, and Jerry Kokich as Drosselmeyer. Other featured performers are members of the Ballet Petit Performing Arts Center Ballet Companies, with students from the Performing Arts Center filling out the ensemble.
