Flamenco Dance Technique and Repretory Flamenco Dance Technique and Repertory classes are designed for the intermediate and advanced student who has a thorough understanding of flamenco technique, rhythms, structure and vocabulary. Technique and artistry is further developed through various strengthening exercises and choreographies.
This class, taught by Olivia Rojas, will explore dance and music conventions used in tablao and the use of palmas and its relationship to the baile and cante.
ATTIRE: We encourage free expression of dance wear fashion that is comfortable to each individual student. Appropriate dance wear includes form fitting clothes such as leotards, tank tops, tights, track pants, skirts and vests. Loose fitting clothes are difficult to see body placement and form.
SHOES: Flamenco shoes are an investment. If interested in purchasing flamenco shoes I can help explore different options on where to order. Alternate guidelines are as follows:
-Closed toe shoes ALWAYS
-A dress shoe or boot
-Character shoes can be purchased at any dance store
