LocationArtisan's Courtyard
DescriptionMedium-Advanced level (back to back with the Intro to Flamenco Guitar at the same location if possible). Prior attendance to the Intro to Flamenco, other experience with Flamenco, or a medium to advanced level in other dancing discipline (eg Belly dance) highly recommended. We will learn in-depth the origin and meaning of 6 of the main palos of Flamenco: rumba, tango, guajira, alegria, buleria, and solea. We will go over some of the most common steps to set you up for success as a solo bailaor (dancer) leading the cuadro (ensemble) in a relaxed, friendly, encouraging environment. Students will show their skill at the Showcase.
Bring form fitting clothing and, for women, flowy long skirt (some extras available to borrow at the workshop). Flamenco shoes a plus but not required; you can bring character shoes or dress shoes with no more than 2" heel. NO tap shoes and NO boots that restrict ankle movement.
