Class/Level Descriptions
Flamenco I: Introduction to Flamenco for absolute beginners. Beginner students will learn posture, arm, hand and body technique, footwork technique, how to listen for and respond to flamenco rhythms, and the basic structure of flamenco dance. Students will learn short segments or variations in each class.

Flamenco II: This class is for students with at least 4-6 months of good attendance at Flamenco I class (or by instructor evaluation). Students should already know basic footwork and armwork technique. Flamenco II classes are aimed at improving footwork technique, armwork, turns, and maintaining posture and coordination while dancing. Students will dance simple choreographies (like alegrias, tangos, or bulerias) in order to learn to work with different musical styles.

Flamenco III: Students at this level should already have a background of at least two years of flamenco dance instruction, and have solid knowledge of a wide range of technique. Classes will focus on improving musicality and speed of footwork, body coordination in more complex combinations, turns, and learning to identify and work with a range of musical palos (styles). Students will learn choreographies for performance opportunities throughout the year.
