Flamenco for Belly Dancers
Oriental and Tribal dancers can add to their skill set, working in bare feet with minimal footwork the focus is on flamenco upper body, arms and expression building towards a short choreography.
Drum + Dance Flamenco
Dancers who want to drum and drummers who’d like to dance or accompany, we learn patterns on the Cajon and then we dance them. This is all about rhythm and coordination and a fun introduction to flamenco! Cajon literally means ‘crate’ and has Peruvian origins but has taken root in flamenco since the 1980’s.
What to Wear?
Dancers will need strong shoes to stamp in with a heel. E.g. A boot or character heel are ideal, sneakers are ok. Loose clothing / long skirt for women. Drummers wear loose clothing; jeans, track pants, t-shirt.
