Flamenco is a genre of music and dance which originated in Andalucia, the Southern region of Spain. It is traditionally performed in the form of a trio including a singer, a guitarist and a dancer. Flamenco is intimately linked to the Gypsies’ way of life and is also an important aspect of today’s social life in Spain.
The course is suitable for absolute beginners and for both men and women. It is also suitable for participants who have a prior experience in flamenco and want to consolidate their skills. The instructor will appropriately take care of the students’ needs, depending on their level.
Students will work on basic palos (styles) such as Tangos, Alegrias and Solea. They will learn to use their hands, arms and hips, to do footwork (zapateado), marcajes (markings) and palmas (hand clapping). This class aims at teaching students solid flamenco grounds. Special emphasis will be put on posture, bodywork, attitude and attention to details.
Participants should bring their own Flamenco shoes, character shoes or hard sole/flexible shoes to classes. High and thin heels as well as sneakers or similar shoes are not recommended at all. Comfortable clothes are advised for both men and women.
