FLAMENCO INTENSIVO

Custom-designed residencies, some culminating in student performance, can be
created for your students incorporating movement, music, Spanish language and cultural study. The workshop model is employed with a consistent group of students over multiple visits in order to explore Flamenco dance, music and Spanish language/culture more deeply. Students will work collaboratively with the instructor’s supervision to develop a Flamenco choreography with beginning, middle and end that incorporates different pathways, levels, etc. The incorporation of traditional costume pieces can be included, narration regarding the cultural context of the artform can be developed and a variety of cross-disciplinary curriculum concepts can be explored.

  • A 3-day residency with a consistent group of students would be the minimum requirement for the workshop-style model but would not include culminating performance.  

  • Culminating performance presentations by the students require a minimum of 4 days of residency, preferably 5.

  • Residency work with a specific group may also be combined with Lecture/Demo and/or one-time Workshop experience for additional involvement of student population.

  • Eligible for Fund for the Arts' TAG and 5x5 grants; Kentucky Arts Council's Teaching Arts Together grant

Rates negotiable depending on schedule.
