The venue was wonderful. We temporarily took the barn doors off the dance studio, and performed on the wonderful oak studio floor that Freddie had designed. We strung a curtain for a backdrop and placed chairs for the performers, strung up lights, and draped Spanish shawls. The full and enthusiastic audience of friends, family, and Flamenco aficionados, sat on folding chairs and pillows placed over Oriental rugs spread on top of the asphalt driveway that wound itself between the barn and the house. We used the community kitchen in the breezeway to prepare food and serve drinks. We strung lights outside and had stage lights in the studio where we performed. The stage looked like a fairytale scene.
Freddie and I performed a dance we were working on, a Garrotín, which I did with a hat. Freddie played guitar and sang for me. At the end, I put the hat in front of us both and we kissed behind it. The audience loved it. By this time, Freddie and I had named ourselves Flamenco Romántico.
