Class Descriptions:
Beginner I: Technique for the beginner student who has had some previous flamenco experience. Only 1 class scheduled for this group, but if there is interest further classes can be arranged.

Beginner II / Intermediate: Technique! Feet, arms, turns, posture, movement, etc

Intermediate / Advanced: Siguiryas. Theory, technique, choreography - with (and without) manton.

Castanettes: 1/2 hr class for anyone wishing to try or refresh their castanettes. For those wishing to try, but without their own castanettes, I will be bringing a few extra pairs with me for use.

Introduction to Bata: 1/2 hr class for those of Intermediate level or above who are new to bata de cola (or those with previous experience interested in reviewing the basics). Note: although it is preferable to have a bata, it is not a requirement for the class. If you do not have a bata, try bringing a regular pair of sports ankle weights to the class (as they are useful to increase strength and simulate the weight of the bata).

Bata de Cola: Geared for the Intermediate / Advanced dancer, who has had experience with bata de cola. We will be reviewing all bata technique, as well a exploring portions of choreography based in siguiriyas (with and without manton)
