    Trained by the world renowned flamenco artists Tomás de Madrid and "La Tati", Edwin Aparicio, who's the founder and director of Flamenco Aparicio Dance Company in Washington, D.C., made his debut at the legendary Casa Patas in Madrid in 2001. In 2005, Aparicio performed as a soloist and company member with Jóvenes Flamenco at the Centro Cultural de San Blas in Madrid. Furthermore, he conducts flamenco classes throughout the country and was nominated for the 2010 Metro DC Dance Award for Outstanding Individual Performance.
    Aparicio and his ensemble of dancers and guitarists will bring to the Schwartz an enchantment like never before this weekend.

    The Dance Factory's annual summer performance will unveil five fun new works at Delaware State University's Education and Humanities Theater on Sunday.
    Each piece is choreographed by local dancers ranging from ages 9 to 18 and it's a culmination of several months of work in which the groups identified a topic, researched it, developed movement phrases and decided on music and costuming.
    "It was a wonderful experience for all the dance students participating in the course work," said Sheri Towner-Gabrelcik, director and owner of The Dance Factory. "They were excited to take ownership of their choreography and it was quite inspiring to watch their pieces develop."
