We wish flamenco would replace belly dancing as the new dance-turned-fitness trend. Veil dances and shimmying is so 2003. Time for those sexy but loud little stomps and graceful arms with snapping fingers. Sure, you say, but flamenco isn't as aerobic as belly dancing. But have you ever seen a pudgy flamenco dancer? We think not. See some of the best in contemporary flamenco during the 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. performance of Teye & Viva el Flamenco at the Clay Pit, 4460 Belt Line Road in Addison, during the Indian restaurant's Live Music Wednesdays. Guitarist Teye, who performed on Joe Ely's Letter to Laredo, is joined by his wife, dancer Belén Olivia Bermdez, granddaughter of the famous flamenco dancer Diego Bermdez. Reservations for the performance are recommended. Call 972-233-0111.
