Upper body technique: Strengthen your core and arm muscles while learning primary body positions. We focus on correct posture and positioning to effectively and successfully execute body movements. Repetitive, slow movements to support your learning of flamenco.
Footwork: Learn the different footwork techniques and which muscles to engage when through a series of exercises (that are equally as good for the brain as for the body).
Rhythm & Palmas: Study palmas (rhythmic hand-clapping) which is an essential skill for any flamenco dancer.
Choreography: Put skills into practice by combining steps in succession to form short combinations that we'll turn into a choreography. Repetitive, slow movements support dancers as you as you learn to combine steps in succession.
Beginners, join us, and learn what you need to know to dance flamenco.
