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.
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.
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.
