The Flamenco Kid 

By Marge Perko

The Paco Peña Flamenco Dance Company has inspired a new devotion to an ancient dance by strumming, stomping, and clapping its way from Cordoba's cafés to concert halls throughout the world. "He takes you from an intimate moment with his guitar to the dances," says Cleveland Museum of Art artistic director Massoud Saidpour. "The resulting mix is stunning." The 10-member troupe — founded more than 25 years ago — updates traditional sounds and dances. "Flamenco is drama, song, and dance," says Saidpour. "We may not understand what they're singing, but we have a strong emotional reaction."
