A flamenco class for kids
How do I sign up?
Contact us if you're interested in this class for your child.
What is it?
A flamenco class for kids. While actively moving and developing coordination skills and playing around with rhythms, students will study flamenco dance technique and flamenco rhythm. Students will learn dance steps as well as how to support each other as dancers using palmas (flamenco hand clapping) and jaleos (calls of encouragement) and cante (flamenco singing).
"I want to move to Portland so I can take classes from Laura everyday, " said a little girl who came into town from Seattle for our summer workshop. What fun we had!
Appropriate for children ages 4 and above.
What experience is necessary?
No experience is necessary, but if your child has done some flamenco, that's great too!
Teaching children is something I love to do. I have a Masters of Art in Education and was formerly a full-time elementary school teacher. I teach flamenco residencies at general education schools in the Portland area, workshops for local dance schools/programs, and sometimes even in after-school arts programs. I look forward to working with your child (and perhaps you as well).
