Theatre Flamenco of San Francisco, one of the Bay Area’s oldest and most prolific dance companies will celebrate its 50th anniversary on Friday, November 4 , 2016 with special performances El Latir del Tiempo/The Beat of Time

Featuring the traditional color, passion and character that distinguish the art of flamenco, Theatre Flamenco presents some of the world’s most renowned artists from Spain! Artists include: dancer Pastora Galvan, an international star of flamenco, who made her professional debut with Theatre Flamenco at the age of 15; and flamenco singer Juana la del Pipa, who hails from a dynasty of artists from the flamenco cradle of Jerez de la Frontera in Southern Spain. 

El Latir del Tiempo/The Beat of Time will be performed in celebration of Theatre Flamenco’s glorious past and in eager anticipation of our vibrant future,” said Zertuche. As part of the 50th anniversary, Zertuche has opened a new flamenco center in the Mission District called Carola Zertuche Centro de Arte Flamenco/Theatre Flamenco of San Francisco. Opening in September, the center will be devoted to the art, study and performance of all aspects of flamenco music and dance. “Along with growing national and international recognition, Theatre Flamenco has a new space in San Francisco’s Mission District. After our 50th anniversary season, we plan to begin using this space to expand our teaching to include children’s flamenco classes. The ‘beat of time’ will continue, as the powerful and expressive legacy of flamenco is passed on to future generations.”

Junior League of San Jose is creating awareness of poverty by hosting a Sip and Stroll event to benefit the Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI) raising funds for programs that support foster youth on Wednesday, September 21, 2016 from 6-9pm. 

The LBDI was pioneered by the Junior League of London with the goal to make poverty unfashionable. While Londoners were attending glamorous Fashion Week that month, local Junior Leaguers wore the same black dress every day to work, parties, dinners, and events to raise awareness on poverty issues in the city. Since then, many Junior League chapters have taken the initiative to fight poverty throughout the world. 

At the Santana Row Sip and Stroll, event attendees are encouraged to wear their little black dresses for an evening of fashion and fun. Tickets are $40 and include champagne, wine tastings, treats, and specials discounts inside exclusive Santana Row shops including Anthropologie, Tommy Bahama, Lululemon Athletica, Kendra Scott, Donald J. Pliner, Kit & Ace, Boutique Harajuku, Calypso St. Barth and more. Check in for the event will take place in Santana Row Park (across from Left Bank Brasserie) where attendees will receive a passport, wine glass and time to pose for a photo in their “little black dress.”

AARP premiered the screening for Caregiving: The Circle of Love at the University of San Francisco. The 14-minute documentary tells the powerful and inspiring stories of three Chinese American caregivers.

MSNBC anchor Richard Lui’s segment, “Coming Home,” explains how he flies from New York to San Francisco every weekend to help care for his father, who has Alzheimer’s disease. Elizabeth Chun’s segment, “Sandwiched Caregiver,” is about her efforts to care for her mother and her grandchildren. And former AARP historian Lily Liu shares how she aspires to be the “Dragon Daughter” for her ailing mother. Even the filmmaker, Toan Lam, is a former caregiver for family members.

Asian cultural values and traditions affect how our communities approach caregiving with a sense of duty and respect for elders. But they also keep us from discussing such emotional topics openly. This documentary will spark those difficult conversations within families, because in the end, many of us will either be caregivers for our loved ones or need caregiving from them.

You can watch the documentary right here.
