Dear Flamencos in Edmonton,
This September I am offering 3 master flamenco singing classes starting this Thursday September the 15th at 6:30pm in downtown Edmonton.
In those three sessions you will get to learn a full piece that you can potentially sing at "Juergas" (flamenco parties) where some of you sing and some others dance. This will allow you to get a general overview of the "palo" to study, understand to clap and orchestrate palmas, choreograph it, sing it and dance it if you are already a flamenco dance student.
Join me for this upcoming session of three classes of 1.5 hrs each with local guitar player Nyles Varughese. You dont have to be a singer, you just need to have some passion for flamenco and be eager to learn, some general understanding of flamenco styles or if you are musician and want to expand your range of talent.
Potencial palos to study:
1. Bulerias/ tangos
3. Solea por bulerias
You can vote for the palo of your preference and we can decide what to do then.
If you are interested please send me an email back with name and phone number. To reserve your spot you will have to make a deposit of $40.00 or if you are certain to take all classes you can send the full amount ($115.00 early bird) through interact payment at email@example.com
* Minimum of 4 people to run this class.
* If more than 4 people location of classes might change to Whyte Ave studio Sugar Swing.
Hope to see you there!
