The Bitter End is the oldest rock and roll club in New York City. For over 50 years, audiences have been blown away by legendary artists like Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan, Lady Gaga, Jackson Browne, Neil Diamond, Gavin DeGraw, Woody Allen, Jon Stewart, Randy Newman, Billy Crystal, Tommy James, Norah Jones, Donny Hathaway, Curtis Mayfield, and thousands more.

The Academy for Teachers proudly presents dancer Naheed Khosrovi and Spanish guitarists Cristo and Rafael Cintron for an exhilarating evening of flamenco—at once joyful and tragic and passionate.

Bring a date, have a drink, and open your hearts.

For the nerds: Brittanica tells us “the roots of flamenco, though somewhat mysterious, seem to lie in the Roma migration from northwest India to Spain between the 9th and 14th centuries. These migrants brought with them tambourines, bells, and wooden castanets, and an extensive repertoire of songs and dances. In Spain they encountered the rich cultures of the Sephardic Jews and the Moors. Their centuries-long cultural intermingling produced the unique art form known as flamenco.”
