San Antonio's Urban 15 is about to conduct its yearly call  for talent – you've got it, and they want it. 

"We're looking for a few good men, and women, who like to drum and dance," George Cisneros says.

Catherine Cisneros expanded on the idea.   

"We have noticed there is an incredible amount of talent and training in our community that happens at an early age, and then life catches up with you," Catherine says.

An international evening of dance, music and literature is planned for Wednesday night. Sponsored by Alianza Latinoamericana, the evening starts off with dance--specifically, the Tango. Don't know how to Tango? Josue Vazquez says not a problem.

"We will have a tango lesson--Argentine Tango lesson. My friend Manuel Lobo will be teaching the lesson. We have a large selection of tangos. It will be basic tango for people who never done it. If somebody is there has done it before, we can accommodate them, too."

The Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center focuses on one particular kind of dance this weekend. It's a dance whose origins are long ago and far away. Here's the Guadalupe's Belinda Menchaca.

"It actually comes from the southern region of Spain--Andalusia, and is influenced   by Arabic music and comes from the gypsies, and of course, it has evolved, and I think that is why it is so vibrant today."

She's talking of course about Flamenco.
