XavierInternship:  Pasion y Arte Flamenco
Major- Dance & Theatre     
Minor: Business Management

Pasion y Arte Flamenco
In the past Flamenco was exclusive to Spain. This festival was designed to create awareness about the art of Flamenco dancing and to expand and popularize it around the world. The festival included 3 main artists, Rosario Toledo, and Isreal Galvan & Pastora Galvan. The festival featured a combination of performances, a master class (which had 30 people in a dance space learning basic moves) and a panel discussion.

Day to Day
The dancers were from Spain so I worked mainly as the artist translator.  I helped translate the artist requests for lighting, sound and gel colors. Before the festival began I helped set up the welcome table, which included brochures and t-shirts. I also helped with the stage set-up by moving lights  

What I Learned
The practical nature of this experience coupled with my classroom teaching was helpful. Since arriving at Manhattanville I have appreciated dancing more but watching the movement of flamenco and how it resonated with the audience was truly amazing. This internship also helped me learn how to handle myself in professional situations.

Favorite Movement
Pastora’s light cues were all wrong during her technical rehearsal. There was not much time until the performance but instead of being upset she just stayed calm and wrote new cues. It was refreshing to see such professionalism.

The Best Part the Internship
This internship was truly a privilege and I would highly recommend this experience to others. Being in a professional theater environment was so enjoyable and it felt like I was working with family. I loved working with my professor outside of the classroom in a professional environment and with fellow students Susanna Margarita and Valeria Gomez. We all worked as a team to make the process happen and developed close connections because we were working towards the same goal and had the same passion for what we were working towards. The added benefit was that the dancers were humble and nice.

Advice
Stay calm and breath- focus on work and realize your expectations might not be met but you have to make it work. Moments of crisis will happen but as long as you stay calm you will be fine.
