Golden dancer shines in Flamenco spotlight

Madison Durand stepped into the spotlight at the Flamenco Rosario in Golden.

Dancer Madison Durand performed with the Flamenco Rosario on April 13.

During the performance of Mis Herman by Flamenco Rosario at the Golden Civic Centre on April 13, local 10-year-old dancer Madison Durand had the chance to take part in the performance.

Durand was chosen from local students and had just about two months to learn her part from a video provided by the dance troupe.

“I thought the hand movements were kind of hard but the jumps were an easier part for me,” she said.

A dancer since the age of five, Durand said she was very excited to have the chance to perform at the show.

“My mom signed me up (to dance classes) when I was five because I really wanted to do ballet. When we moved to Golden I started to do jazz, tap and all the other ones,” she said.

Although she had danced in front of bigger crowds, Durand did admit to being a little nervous for her performance.

“I was excited. I was kind of nervous because I know these people,” she said.

Durand also got to spend some time before the show with the dancers and enjoyed watching them prepare.

“When we first got here we were downstairs and they were getting warmed up and stomping around to get ready for the show. I think they are really good,” she said.
