Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center

Edward Benavidez

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.

A play opens Friday night at the Guadalupe Theatre based on a children's book. That book is That's Not Fair, No Es Justo! And it's based on a young San Antonian's realization that sometimes things just aren't fair.

San Antonio is packed with things to do this weekend, and here are three you should really consider. First off tonight The Classic Theatre's Santaland Diaries.

The Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center has named its new executive director. Her name is Cristina Balli, and it's not her first time to live in San Antonio.

"I was here in the early '90s as a student at Our Lady of the Lake University," she says.

Balli says that though she hadn't found her way into the full-time arts field yet, even then she looked up to the Guadalupe.

"It has always performed as one of the leaders in Chicano, Latino and Native American arts programming in the country," Balli says.

From a Gospel brunch to Afro-Cuban music, to a Farmer's Market, get ready--the Weekend's here. Saturday morning at Trinity University, it's the Trinity Market. It's the city's only University-sponsored Farmer's Market.

"We really focus on Health and Wellness, so most of our vendors offer healthy options in addition to your farmers and ranchers that come out."

That's Trinity's Haley Sayrs.
