Fado Night

Yes, yes, we are doing the traditional Fado Nights.
Every Tuesdays at 19:30. Reservation mandatory (282 770 079).
Someone wrote:"Fado, the Portuguese Soul
Fado, a shawl, a guitar, a voice and heartfelt emotion. These are the ingredients of Fado, the celebrated form of world music that captures what it is to be Portuguese.
Inspiration for Fado can come from almost any source. Although there are predominance of themes like: destiny, deep-seated feelings, disappointments in love, the sense of sadness and longing for someone who has gone away, misfortune, the ups and downs of life, the sea, the life of sailors and fishermen, and last but not least “Saudade” (one of the main themes used in fado, that means a kind of longing).
Fado is probably the oldest urban folk music in the world and represents the heart of the Portuguese soul, and for that matter fado performance is not successful if an audience is not moved to tears.
Fado cannot be explained; it must be felt and experienced "

Dance Algarve 2010

Under the umbrella of the Local Social Responsability, Sonel Hotels is once more sponcering the "Dance Algarve 2010".

DANCE ALGARVE 2010, hosted by Associação da Dança Ibérica with the support of the Cultural division of the Town Council of Lagos, is under the direction of Gwen Franco, Gillian Anthony and Bernadete Bishop.

The event will take place at the Centro Cultural, a purpose-built arts complex in the center of Lagos, housing studios and a Theatre. Some classes will take place in nearby studios.
We are also proud to announce the first Master Class that will be given by MARIA PALMEIRIM, Ballet Mistress, Companhia Nacional de Bailado, Lisbon.

Who is it for?

...all students who have studied ballet for at least two years. The age range will be from ten years upwards and all levels are welcome. In previous years students and teachers from every region of Portugal, including the Azores, many countries of Europe, Japan, Brazil and South Africa have participated.

Why and How?

Dance students need opportunities to experience classes with different teachers, meet other dance students and try-out new dance related subjects.
Dance Algarve offers classes where the development of technique, musicality and artistry go hand in hand alongside a focus on performance. Highly experienced musicians will accompany all ballet and flamenco classes.
On the final day of the course students will show examples of the range of subjects studied at the demonstration “On Stage!” to be held in the theatre at the Centro Cultural, for parents, friends and invited guests.
