Artists Siempre Flamenco dazzle seniors

(MIAMI, January 24, 2013) – Elderly residents from Miami-Dade County Senior Centers were treated to a special performance by the renowned music and dance troupe Siempre Flamenco on Friday, January 18, 2013 at Robert Russa Moton Elementary School, located in Perrine, Florida.

Famed dancer Celia Fonta and singer/musician Paco Fonta, better known as Siempre Flamenco delighted the group of over 70 seniors with their fiery performance as they have done for audiences all over the world.   “I will remember this day always” commented Eduardo Hakim from Florida City who shared that the performance reminded him of happy times in his native Spain.

The performance is a part of a continuous effort by Miami-Dade Community Action and Human Services Department (CAHSD) to foster social and cultural engagement among the elderly population of Miami-Dade County.  Working with partners such as the South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center run by Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs, plans are in the works to provide a roster of events geared toward enhancing the quality of life for seniors who are assisted by the County’s 22 Senior and Adult Care Centers.
