MondaysAbsolute Beginner Session

January 14, 21, 28 & February 4

Start flamenco dance from scratch! This is the perfect opportunity for those who were always curious to learn about this mesmerizing and beautiful gitano-Andalusian art form but haven’t had the opportunity to try it. Learn the basic elements of the art form while improving your balance, flexibility and strength in a comfortable setting- all while having fun! Note for Beginners: Flamenco or character dance shoes are best for class, but other sturdy, close-toed footwear will work (i.e. low, thick-heeled shoes or boots approx. 1.5 – 3in high) and comfy clothing to allow movement like stretch pants. Skirt is not required.

 

 

Intro to Flamenco for Absolute Beginners 6:30 to 7:45pm

SaturdaysFlamenco Technique & Choreography

January 12, 26. February 2, 9 (Note: No class on Jan. 19)

All classes include a rigorous warm-up focused on building strength, balance and stylization followed by upper body and footwork drills, turns, and combined exercises to improve fluidity of movement and coordination. The goal of our technique work is to improve execution while integrating a deeper understanding of flamenco compas (rhythms). The choreography portion of the classes will continue building on choreographic material introduced in the Fall Session while also introducing new material all with the goal of exploring flamenco dance structures, and deepening an understanding of compas and cante. 

Beginners 10:30am to 11:45am
Intermediate 11:45am to 1:00pm
