Flamenco is a Spanish art form made up of three parts: guitar playing (“guitarra”), song (“cante”), and dance (“baile”). Flamenco originated in the southern regions of Spain, but it’s thought to be influenced by many world cultures, including Latin American, Cuban, and Jewish traditions. This workshop series will focus on arm/hand gestures and fun stomping footwork combination. Enter the world of flamenco filled with passion, precision, and energy. Female students should wear a leotard or fitted top, skirt/fitted pants/exercise pants, and covered-toe shoes with a thick heel (preferred: character dance shoe or flamenco shoe). Male students should dress in comfortable clothing and wear short, flexible boots or hard-soled shoes.

Build awareness between your mind, body and breath to leave feeling connected and centered. Pilates is a great way to cross train and complement dancing or other athletic pursuits!
