Flamenco dance introduction

Flamenco Dance Introduction with Sarah Chambers, accompanied by Paul Gibson (guitar)

This is an introduction to flamenco dance, suitable for beginners and improvers. Come along if you have not tried flamenco dance before, or if it has been a while and you are a bit rusty! Don’t worry if you didn’t make it to the previous classes!  Dancers at a higher level are very welcome to come and brush up on footwork, palmas and structure.

I will be covering basic flamenco technique and the different percussive dance steps, compas (rhythm), palmas (clapping) and body work. The second class will incorporate these into a short choreography in the fandangos de Huelva palo (style), together with simple palmas to accompany the dance.

All Saturdays in September: 1-2pm Flamenco technique; 2-3pm Fandangos choreography. Cost is £10 per class, or £15 per day if paid in advance. Bookings: espiritu.flamenco@virginmedia.com
