Alegrias workshop with John Walsh Sunday 25rd of March, 10:30 – 5 pm Rogue Studios, Varna St Manchester
An intensive day studying Alegrias. The workshop will be focused around accompaniment for Cante.
But will also include lots of technique, remates and a few falsettas.
This workshop will cover routines for improving your improvisation, improvisation and creativity exercises and developing your confidence. This will be a fun practical workshop, rather than a theoretical one.
The workshop will take place at Rogue Artists’ Studios new site at the former Varna Street Primary School in Gorton. Full details will be provided when booking.
Dance students will learn technique, some choreography as well as an introduction to flamenco singing. All of these courses include a short break and the last hour will consist of a ‘Join the Dots’ session where all of the groups join together and learn how the dance, guitar and singing connect.
The workshops will cover Tangos and Bulerías for both dancers and guitarists. The palos will be explained and material will then be put into practice in the ‘Join the Dots’ session where guitarists and dancers join with the fantastic singer Anna Colom! It’s a brilliant and unique opportunity to experience live singing, asking any questions you might have and also to learn essential skills for your own performances. This material is great for fin de fiesta and also for finishing a solo dance.
This workshop will look at ways to develop really strong technique and rhythm that can be applied to a range of Palos including Alegrias, Bulerias, Solea and Tangos.
The workshop will be primarily aimed at intermediate players who want to gain more confidence with their playing in a range of styles, but it is open to other players too so please email email@example.com with any questions.
10:30am – 5pm
Those of you have been to John’s previous workshops know how good they are and what an amazing player and teacher he is.
