What is it?
Flamenco is a genre of music, song and dance from Andalusia in southern Spain, noted for its energetic, staccato style. There are many theories that explain the meaning of the word flamenco. One commonly accepted version translates flamenco as Spanish for the Flemish soldiers of the Spanish-Belgian Territories. These soldiers were renowned for their self-confidence, style and ostentatious pride, all qualities that reflect the gypsy character. During this class you will learn the technique and rhythmic patterns as part of simple choreographies, with special attention to feet exercises and other basic exercises. In this Flamenco Beginners class you will pick up the essential foot/heel rhythms, posture, strength and body control, as well as learning hand movements and expression.

Who is it for?
Anyone aged 16+ with or without dance experience.

What should I wear?
Comfortable clothes, preferably a flared skirt (women) or comfortable trousers (men). Women should wear comfortable shoes with a small heel or flamenco shoes, and men should wear a shoe with a boot heel.

What do I need to bring?
Bottle of water

Teacher: Estefanía Toro Carretero
