FLAMENCO CLASS DESCRIPTIONS:

  • BEGINNERS LEVELS: Introduction to basic technique of footwork, arms and bodywork in flamenco dance. Students learn body awareness, improve posture, musicality and co-ordination whilst learning fundamental steps and essential rhythms. NO dance experience needed, no partner needed!

  • NEW! BAREFOOT FLAMENCO: Barefoot Flamenco is a unique style of flamenco which does not require intricate footwork with heeled shoes used in regular flamenco class. The aim is to introduce dance as part of our everyday life in it’s most natural and social form, and to explore the essence of dance and song as it is - an integrated part of Andalusian/Gypsy culture of Spain.

The focus of Barefoot Flamenco is also on healing the mind and body through dance movement, singing and music. It is designed to be more gentle on the body than regular flamenco classes and is suitable for the elderly as well as children, and both men and women are welcome.

Beginners learn a gentle but energetic approach to flamenco including arm and bodywork, technique of hand movements, basics of turns and some common steps and breaks which make a part of flamenco dance.

  • INTERMEDIATE/ EXPERIENCED: A variety of flamenco styles are explored and classes often include use of props such as shawls, fans, bata and castanets. Suitable for dancers with at least 5 years experience in flamenco who would like to develop a deeper understanding of flamenco dance and music. A more comprehensive training to improve and consolidate on footwork, use of the body, turns, marcajes and students develop confidence to dance solo as well as personal instruction to correct technique.
