Beginning Flamenco Dance

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.

Intermediate Castanets

Castanets as Music and for Choreography: Multiple patterns will be developed to accompany a set piece of music por Fandangos.  We will culminate in a full choreography that may be danced and/or accompanied while standing and playing. Command of ta, pi and riyah in compas is required (even if the riyah is not perfect every time).  Note: choreography is a continuation of a previous class schedule already in progress.
