Description:

For students with no flamenco dancing experience (Beginner 101) to students with less than two years of flamenco dancing experience(Beginner 102-104).

Our Beginner 101 and 102 classes will help you build a strong foundation in flamenco by focusing on footwork and proper technique for body and arm movements, and by teaching you a popular dance called Sevillanas. Las Sevillanas is a Spanish folk dance that is generally done with partners, but you do not need a partner to learn this festive and social dance! The dance consists of four distinct segments that have an almost choreographed look to them, and the dance is commonly seen at parties and festivals in Seville, Spain.

After establishing a strong flamenco foundation in Beginner 101 and 102, you will really be prepared to learn more challenging footwork and flamenco dancing in our Beginner 103 and 104 classes. In these classes, you will learn how to dance to a traditional flamenco 12-count beat by studying a dance called Fandangos de Huelva. El Fandango is a very old style of dance. There are many types of Fandangos, and the type that we will be teaching in this class is very popular in the Huelva region of Spain. The dance is somewhat flirtatious, with movements that can be associated with one person trying to attract another. This course is divided into two parts (Beginner 103 and 104) and will teach the students four Fandangos.

Course Fees:

$240 Full Course.
When paying in two Installments: Your first payment will be $120 (which will cover the first month and the last month of class.) The remaining two months will be paid on the first day of the second month of class ($120)

Intermediate Courses

Click here to view course details

Description:

These courses are for students with at least two years of flamenco dancing experience. Students who are prepared to dance at the intermediate level must develop a good sense of the twelve-count beat that makes up the foundation of many flamenco dances, because our intermediate courses will teach the students how to improvise their dance within this familiar flamenco structure.

Flamenco 201 and 202:  "Guajiras"
During our 201 and 202 courses, students will learn Guajiras.
The term "Guajiras" comes from the word Guajiro (Cuban farmer, and a popular song that is common among them). Guajiras are part of a group of flamenco dances that come from a category called "Cantes de Ida y Vuelta" (dances that are influenced by Hispanic American folk music). The origins of Guajiras are rooted in the Cuban folk tradition. Guajiras have a very happy and rhythmic style, and the lyrics from Guajiras often paint a picture of ordinary life in Cuba. In this course, students will learn how to mix together several steps so that they can improvise and dance their own Guajiras. Students will also learn transitional footwork to incorporate into the dance.

Flamenco 203 and 204: Alegrías
During our 203 and 204 courses, students will learn  Alegrías. The term "Alegrías" comes from the word “alegre” (happy), and this dance belongs to the family of flamenco dances called the “Cantiñas.” Las Cantiñas is a generic name for a series of singing pieces that are sung in middle voice, many times in an improvisational and playful way. The dance has a very well marked  “escobilla”  (footwork) and a slower portion called the “silencio.” In this course, students will learn how to mix together several steps so that they can improvise and dance their own Alegrías. Students will also learn one escobilla, and learn how to dance  “silencios” with expression, control, nice body movement, and duende.
 

Course Fees:

$240 Full Course.
When paying in two Installments: Your first payment will be $120 (which will cover the first month and the last month of class.) The remaining two months will be paid on the first day of the second month of class ($120)
