Description

Experience the romantic and exciting art of flamenco dancing that has been at El Cid since 1961. A landmark in Silverlake that is a great show for a group or a romantic evening for two.  This event includes a three course meal (soup, salad and a choice of an entree) and the show at a special discounted Goldstar only price. 

Almardiente Flamenco:

Almardiente is a Flamenco dance company comprised of seven fiery, sensuous and talented young women. Alma meaning soul, and Ardiente meaning ardent or fiery, Almardiente puts on a show that is not to be missed.

Performing with some of the most talented and respected Flamenco singers and musicians around, Almardiente presents an exciting and beautiful performance of Flamenco song and dance that offers both traditional and modern styles of Flamenco. Drawing from a vast repertoire that includes bulerias, tientos, alegrias, sevillanas, guajira, solea por bulerias, tangos, rumbas and fandangos, this show is unlike any other.
