Class description

First year of Flamenco. Dancers brand new to flamenco dance. The Beginner level classes will introduce dancers to the basics of flamenco movements. For the month of September, Beginner level is the Introductory level.
Fall & Winter Choreographies: Tango / Guajira

Slower pace than beginner level. Once dancers have a good grasp of the basic structure and dance being taught, they will advance into the Beginner level class. - New dancers welcome throughout the year.
Please email or phone ahead to let us know that you will be attending.
Fall & Winter Choreographies: Tango / Guajira

Dancers who have taken flamenco for at least one full term and have performed al least one choreography.

Dancers have strong footwork and upper body movement. Dancers should have a solid understanding and feel of the different 12 & 8 beat rhythms. Dancers are required to take 2x per week.

Dancers will be expected to pick up dance movement quickly, demonstrate dance movement individually and to have a good understanding of the different rhythms of flamenco. Dancers are required to take 2x per week.
