Teijeiro-Ficht, a senior in Education at the University of Illinois and the dance director, with members of the La Fuerza Flamenca, taught Sevillanas to participants, who later performed the introductory dance steps with Brian Stark's Flamenco-Jazz Collective. Influenced by Flamenco, Sevillanas is a style of dance from the Sevilla region in Spain.
