Prerequisite: Basic knowledge of the various flamenco palos (rhythms), including Soleares, Alegrias, Tangos. Students use the dance steps and techniques they have acquired in Beginning Flamenco Class to get closer to performing these dances properly. Students learn more complex arm and body movements and more complicated footwork.

This class is open to all those who have completed at least 2 beginner series at Studio Dionne or who already have flamenco experience. Here we focus on helping students develop individual expression in choreography and musicality and on perfecting technique.

The class will aim to increase dancers’ competence and confidence in three key areas: choreography, musicality and technique. The first 30 min of the class are technique only.

There will be a performance in May 2014 for those who will want to take their dance to the next level and perform the choreography they’ve learned in class.

SPRING 2014: TECHNIQUE + FARRUCA ! Student performing experience is offered with recitals and community shows.
