Intermediate and Advanced Flamenco Dance Classes: 2024

Intermediate Flamenco:

For students who have completed at least six months up to two years of Advanced Beginner classes, and feel comfortable with all the material covered in that level. Dancers should be be able to dance fluidly with proper rhythm, posture and technique, and be prepared for the faster pace of the Intermediate level. Intermediate dancers may be invited to perform at various times throughout the year. There are two class options for Intermediate Level students, Technique Class and/or Choreography Class. If students cannot take both classes, the Technique Class is the best way to enter the Intermediate Level.

Intermediate Technique, 8 Mondays starting January 8, 7:35-8:35pm: Students in this class work on increasing strength, speed and musicality in footwork, balance and control in turns and marcajes, and expression through the upper body. The whole hour is dedicated to technique and short combinations, rather than a complete choreography, although we may focus on one or two palos throughout the course. Students will receive the video of each class to practice at home, and may attend any suitable lower-level class as a make-up in case of absence, or another class with instructor permission. This class is available in-person or online via Zoom. Students will have access to a video recording of each class for practice.

8 classes, January 8, 2024 → February 26, 2024. The fee for the course is $108. (Register below using PunchPass)
