A “pay-what-you-can” dance class teaches intro to flamenco. That’s at 6 p.m. Tuesday at 507 S. Willomet. Wear sturdy hard-soled shoes and workout clothes and bring a few bucks to tip the teacher.

The Texas Theatre hosts a free outdoor movie (it hasn’t been announced, but something related to flamenco) at Sylvan Thirty starting at 7 p.m. Wednesday.
The “Bishop Arts barrage” takes over the B.A.D. from 7-10 p.m. Thursday. Dancers and musicians will stroll the district and stop into local businesses. Afterward, Flemenco Festival headliners perform at The Wild Detectives, starting at 10 p.m.
There’s a performance at Poor David’s Pub Friday, Oct. 13.
