In this video, we will learn about Guatemala’s festival of barriletes gigantes, or giant kites, a celebration deeply rooted in spiritual traditions. We explore how these beautiful kites are used to keep away evil spirits while also sending messages of love and peace. Students will also gain an understanding of how the festival has become a symbol of hope and motivation over the years and the hard work that the people put into these amazing works of art.

The health and safety of our artists, students, and teachers is our top priority. We all know this is a critical moment in our world, with new developments unfolding daily with respect to the COVID-19 virus.

The backbone of Hispanic Flamenco Ballet is our performing group of dancers and musicians. Due to the escalation of the pandemic, and after careful consideration, we have decided to postpone the Spring 2020 tour and send our artists and office employees home so they can be with their families and loved ones.

The economic impact caused this novel virus is yet to be determined. The cost of organizing an entire tour, reserving theatres, and covering travel expenses of artists is a significant investment. 

Despite that, we want you to know we can offer a 100% refund credit towards the upcoming tour. You can reach us at any time, but please note we are working with minimal office staff, from our home offices.

We are all in this together, joining forces against an invisible enemy. Thank you for your solidarity, patience and understanding. Hispanic Flamenco Ballet promises to keep you posted as new information becomes available.

Stay healthy and safe.
