Add some good vino to the cante and baile.

Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana will offer three performances at Queens Theatre in Flushing Meadows Corona Park this weekend. Two of them will end with wine tastings.

The shows are set for Saturday, Feb. 11, at 2 pm and 8 pm with a final presentation on Sunday, Feb. 12, at 3 pm. After the two matinees, Addictive Boutique Winery, which is based in Jackson Heights, will offer free Spanish wines that allegedly pair perfectly with Flamenco. The dancers will join the fun.

This is the only time Flamenco Vivo will present in New York this season. Tickets run from $25 to $42.

Founded in 1983, Flamenco Vivo is currently one of the country’s premier Spanish dance companies. The touring troupe strives to stay true to the genre’s traditional music and choreography while presenting powerful, invigorating productions.

Flamenco, which probably derives from words meaning “fire” or “flame,” comes from the southern Spanish province of Andalusia, where Catholics, Jews, Muslims, and Gypsies co-existed for centuries. The art form mixes cante (singing) with toque (guitar playing), baile (dance), jaleo (vocals), palmas (clapping), and pitos (finger snapping).
