Alaska Tour 2010

Alaska is AWESOME!!!

CALO FLAMENCO went on an extended Alaska tour, we left on Sept. 28th and just returned home on Oct. 11th. Nearly 2 weeks of Alaskan fun and a LOT of flamenco shows!!!

Hang on as I try to give you a quick overview of what we did…

Tuesday…Got in to Anchorage and went to dinner.

Wednesday…We did a school show on Wed. the 29th and then Martin and I taught a workshop at a local dance studio.

Thursday was a marathon day of Teching (for all of you non-theatre folk that means we were staging the show, we were setting up lights and sound). You lose all sense of time and space when you’re in the theatre all day long. But we went and had a wonderful dinner hosted by our dear friends Jason and Evan.


providing a great show means SO MUCH more than just bringing the artistry, we spend a ton of time behind the scenes to make sure the show sounds spectacular and looks spectacular.

(our last day in Alaska, we went to Denali State Park)

We just got back from our trip and I have GOT to figure out a way of being better connected while being on the trip so I can upload photos and write blogs while on tour…it’s something I aspire to.

I will add more photos and details soon…
