July '09 Workshops

We are currently finalizing Ramón Martinez's visit to Edmonton (workshops to take place July 27th - August 1st) and we would like to find out what palos people are interested in studying. Also, there is a possibility of a cante or percussion workshop if there is enough interest.

In order to help us to create a great workshop experience for everyone, please send an email to electrolucy@doghairinc.com to indicate what levels and palos you're interested in studying with Ramón and whether you would be interested in attending either of the additional workshops.
