The Mantón de Manila is a silk shawl with long fringe and intricate floral embroidery. It is common for Spanish women to wear on special occasions, but it is also a popular flamenco dance accessory.
The mantón adds elegance, dimension, and visual drama to flamenco dance and brings attention to the movements of the upper body.
Working with the mantón enhances upper body strength and adds and another level of expression to flamenco dancing.
In this class we study specialized techniques to move and dance with the mantón.
