"Flamenco is an art form consisting of song, music, and dance traditions assimilated from around the world. Originating in the Andalusia community of Spain, flamenco is the badge of identity of numerous communities and groups, in particular the Gitano Roma ethnic community which has played an essential role in its development. The word flamenco refers to an identity that encompasses dignity, honesty of expression, and completeness of presence - the ability to appreciate and live in the moment. These are the qualities that ultimately give flamenco its characteristic intensity." -National Institute of Flamenco
About Winter Session:
We will focus on Sevillanas, one of the many traditional forms of flamenco. It is a fun dance for fiestas and can be danced solo or in pairs.
Winter Session fills up quickly, so you must pay to reserve your spot. Each class is just $10 when you register for the complete session. Please contact us if you need to arrange a payment plan.
You will need short heels or heeled boots for class. Traditional flamenco shoes are made out of leather, fit snuggly, have grippy soles, and a short wooden heel with actual nails nailed into it for making sounds. For beginners, I recommend making due with what's in your closet. When you are ready to purchase shoes for class, please visit Dance Away, right next door to our dance studio at 177 East 3rd Street. They have flamenco shoes as well as character shoes, which are versatile dance/theater shoes and generally more affordable than flamenco shoes.
