Seattle-based Flamenco dancer Savannah Fuentes brings her latest work, Flores de Verano Flamenco en Vivo, to the Island Lake Community Building in Poulsbo June 22 at 7:30 p.m.

After a year of confinement and self-reflection, Fuentes has created a program that celebrates rebirth and new beginnings. The performance will feature traditional Flamenco musical forms as well as contemporary themes. Fuentes will be joined by singer/guitarist Diego Amador Jr.

The concert is part of this extensive West Coast tour. She often performs in communities that would otherwise be unable to enjoy the unique art form.

She has independently produced and danced in over 300 performances and workshops. Born in Seattle to parents of Puerto Rican and Irish ancestry, her fascination with Flamenco dance (baile) and singing (cante) came in early childhood, fueled by watching a performance on TV.

“Although I was just a child, I felt an immediate connection to the art form,” she said.

The location for the Poulsbo concert is 1087 NW Island Lake Road.
