This class will introduce flamenco fundamentals for dance: braceo - the movement of the upper body and arms; zapateado - footwork; palmas - rhythmic hand clapping; structure - the way to sequence movements to communicate with your live musicians. Live guitar and singing accompany your class as you learn this uniquely Spanish artform in a supportive environment. Ages teen and up, no previous dance experience necessary. Note: flamenco is a dance form of personal expression for women and men; it is NOT a partnered dance form.
Continue your flamenco journey utilizing your knowledge of flamenco structure and movement vocabulary to develop your skills in the 12-count palo called Buleria.
