Local flamenca Delilah Buitron isn’t content with dancing by herself. She founded an educational program, teaching the art of flamenco to eager local feet, and an annual Flamenco Festival at the Ochre House Theater (825 Exposition Ave.). Her passion is so infectious, so positively charming, that we caught a secondhand case of it and named Delilah Muse an Observer Mastermind winner earlier this year. Then, we watched awestruck as she charged across the Dallas Contemporary’s gallery in what looked like 8-foot heels. Witness her grace in action this weekend as the fest returns on Saturday and Sunday to show off the fancy dance know-how of living legends Antonio Arrebolo, Ricardo Diaz and Fransico Orozco “Yiyi.” Naturally, Delilah will strut her goods too, and present her most promising local students while she’s got the stage. Put a massive flower in your hair and buy a $15 ticket for Saturday and Sunday’s 7 p.m. performances, or for the 2 p.m. Sunday matinee. Visit dallasflamencofestival.com.
