BOLERO Ravel ARGENTINITA, PILAR LOPEZ, JOSE GRECO, MANOLO VARGAS Two different schools of Spanish dancing are represented in this new choreographic arrangement of the popular work. In the first part the 18rh Century Andalusian school is used, which is similar to classic ballet. The second part is composed of the 19th Century Andalusian dances, using the steps and movements of the typical "Fandango" and "Soleares." The third part is a recapitulation in which the four dancers synthesize the earlier periods, showing the rich sources from which emerged the dance of 20th Century Spain.
