Press Release

For the second time in two years the students of Los Gitanos School of Spanish Dance are fortunate to have examinations conducted by a prominent member of the Spanish Dance Society.  Examinations will take place in Tsawwassen on June 24th 2005 and the examiner will be Dame Mavis Becker. She will also conduct a Master Class for students after the examinations on June 25th and other students who have some Spanish Dance background.

 Dame Mavis Becker is a Founder Member of the Spanish Dance Society which was formed in 1965. It is recognized worldwide for pursuing excellence in presentation, execution and instruction in Spanish Dance.  She received her award of “La Orden de la Cruz de Isabel la Catolica” in South Africa in 2000 from the Spanish Ambassador in the name of King Juan Carlos of Spain for her work with the Society.

 2004 was the very first year the Spanish Dance Society held examinations in Canada.   The students of Los Gitanos came through with flying colours and had 100% pass rate with some students receiving very high marks. Examinations are always a challenge, but the students are excited and looking forward to doing well this year too.

The principal of Los Gitanos School of Spanish Dance is Beverley Mantovani, who has firmly established her school of Spanish Dance here in Tsawwassen.   Beverley has been dancing and teaching since she was a young girl.  As a professional dancer with a Spanish Dance Company in South Africa, she further honed her talent for the Spanish art form and also ran her own dance school.

 The age of students runs from children to older adults who want to experience the rhythm of  Flamenco and Spanish music. This year Beverley is holding Summer School for those wanting to take advantage of improving skills as well as new students who would like to experience a taste of this exciting dance medium.
