La Fiesta del Baile

Artist: Anna Menendez

Type: Residencies


Anna collaborates with school staff to tailor this residency to support the objectives of the school. Flamenco song is poetry with a strong rhythmic base and can benefit Spanish, English, and elementary math classes. In this dance residency, Spanish classes learn the can use Flamenco song to support vocabulary development, pronunciation, and social studies objectives. English classes that are exploring creative writing and poetry can focus on meter through the rhythmic handclapping that accompanies Flamenco song. For elementary math students, Flamenco supports the study of patterns and basic math skills through rhythmic hand clapping.


Typically, residencies range from $2,000 to $3,000, but we can use your available budget and ‘work backwards’ to create a cost-effective residency for your school. We may be able to assist you in securing grant and funding opportunities.

Residencies are tailored to your needs but usually include:

  • A kick-off assembly
  • A required orientation meeting and planning session
  • A set of workshops for classes of up to 25 students each
  • A student culminating or sharing event

  • Artist assembly (see artist’s page for pricing)
  • A set of workshops ($100 each)
  • A required orientation meeting and planning session ($100 each)
  • An evaluation meeting ($100)
