DANCE: Flamenco dance can turn stomping your foot and snapping your fingers into so much more than rude gestures of emphasis. Tonight, dance troupe Caminos Flamencos will debut Canciones 2, a new work by Emmy-winning choreographer Yaelisa. For an updated spin on a Spanish dance tradition, Canciones 2 incorporates songs by The Beatles, Iron and Wine, and Jimi Hendrix among others.

8 p.m. // Cowell Theater at Fort Mason Center // $30-$35

ART I: Secession gallery functions like an "ongoing trunk show" and feature a rotating cast of local and emerging artists. The holiday reception will have wine, cupcakes, music, and a free raffle in addition to all the art on the walls.
