The Flamenco class and its unforgettable circle of women - all shapes, sizes and colors - lead Rochelle on a journey of sisterhood, faith and discovery of her own deep inner voice.

It features internationally respected Flamenco dancer and choreographer Maria "Cha Cha" Bermudez and costume design by Amherst's own Dana Rebecca Woods '86.
