Recently we dropped in on a rehearsal with A’Lante Flamenco, the award-winning Austin troupe headed up by the husband-and-wife team of Isai and Oliva Chacón.
A’Lante has show this weekend at the Long Center. “Snapshots: New World Flamenco” features work by two guest flamenco choreographers, Karen Lugo and Miguel Vargas.
The show features Olivia Chacón in a solo of her own choreography too.

Chacón was awarded “Best Dancer” by the Austin Critics’ Table in 2014.
Look for our feature story on Isai and Olivia Chacón.
