2nd Annual Gitana Revolucion. Celebrating the Spanish Gypsy's Historia y Arte
The Esperanza Peace and Justice Center is thrilled to welcome back the incomparable Silvia Salamanca during an artist showcase weekend at the “2nd Annual Gitana Revolucion: Celebrating the Spanish Gypsy's Historia y Arte” beginning on Friday, July 25, 2014.
Salamanca digs deep into the Gitana psyche and history to define and present a fascinating platica/lecture over the backstory and history of the “Raza Cale” (Spanish Gypsy people) while demonstrating a smoldering mind+body+music balance derived from the particular eras and distilled from the roots of various genres into an unforgettable experience.
Salamanca held the audience spellbound during the first “Gitana Revolution” as her physical fluidity astonished and infused the audience with her compelling vitality. Salamanca communicates Gitana history not only verbally with her knowledge and wit, but also embodies the Spanish/Gypsy/Arabic fusion with delicate strength and articulate movement to exude the quintessence of sparkle, spice, sensuality, and substance.
The 2nd Revolucion promises to surpass the first. Workshops will be available on Saturday, July 26, 2014. Register now at Eventbrite.com.Opening the evening will be Ms. Giomara Bazaldúa of Zombie Bazaar who is offering a free Panza Fusion workshop introducing traditional belly dance drills and core, textured moves of Panza Fusion. Zombie Bazaar is currently accepting donations toward the goal of competing and representing San Anto at &aa Halla Yall in August.
Silvia Salamanca is an internationally acclaimed performer and instructor from Mallorca, Spain, now living and working in Houston, Texas. She has earned world-wide accolades and is the Director of Shunyata Belly Dance. Her web site is http://silviasalamanca.com/

The Esperanza Peace and Justice Center is located at 922 San Pedro Ave., San Antonio, TX 78212, and the Southwest Worker's Union is located at 1416 E Commerce St, San Antonio, TX 78205. Tickets to the workshops and performances can be purchased or reserved online at evenbrite.com search: 2ND ANNUAL GITANA REVOLUCION

Surprise! Surprise! Keeping the Night Skies dark, is no longer just an aesthetic concern! Researches are now finding that dark night skies are important for the proper functioning of many biological systems in humans and animals! Protect the dark Skies! Ace Hardware in Fredericksburg, stocks hoods for your outdoor lighting that direct the light down! Bring back the DARKNESS and the MILKY WAY!
