Starting Monday, Oct. 2, some of Spain’s most sought-after flamenco gitano performers will come to Redondo Beach’s Performing Arts Center for Festival Flamenco Gitano USA 2012. The four-day event serves to celebrate the rich legacy of Spanish Gypsy music and dance and its essential role in flamenco’s evolution. Festival-goers will experience flamenco at its most grassroots form, with performances from multigenerational groups of dancers and musicians, including La Farruca the living matriarch of the Farruco family – the first family of gypsy flamenco dance- and her son, El Carpeta, the 14-year old Flamenco prodigy.

Redondo Classic Car Friday’s

Blog, Community News, North Redondo Beach News   |   Dunham Stewart
“Cruise at the Beach.” every Friday night at Ruby’s Diner parking lot starting at 3 p.m. Redondo Beach is transformed into a car lover’s paradise. Vintage Cadillacs, Buicks, Corvettes, and every car in between. The car show began in 1997 with only 12 to 15 cars. Now, close to 250 show up every week. People from across the South Bay come to show off their cars, or drool over something they wish was parked in their garage. The show is open to everyone, you don’t have to own a pre-1970 to join the show, You can bring any car you want down here as long, as it’s nice. In the old days these cars had personalities – there are muscle cars, street rods, hot rods, and trucks. Each one of them with their own qualities.

Redondo Teachers Agree to Furlough Days

Blog, Community News, North Redondo Beach News   |   Dunham Stewart
Redondo Beach Unified School District students and employees may see up to 17 furlough days during the 2012-2013 school year if neither of two tax initiatives on the November pass. The two measures on the ballot—Proposition 30 and Proposition 38—both call for tax increases to support schools. Proposition 30, introduced by Gov. Jerry Brown, calls for a quarter-cent increase in the state sales tax and raises taxes on the state’s top earners. Molly Munger’s Proposition 38 increases state income tax rates for most Californians for 12 years. If either of the November ballot initiatives pass, there will be no additional furlough days, but if both of them do not pass, an there will be up to seventeen total furlough days, depending on the amount of cuts to the budget the school district will face. In addition to hoping that at least one of the two tax measures benefiting education on November’s ballot pass, the district also hopes that Redondo Beach residents will pass a $63 million bond to help indirectly close RBUSD’s $2 million budget shortfall.
