An Introduction to Flamenco Rhythms and Dance from Spain
July 10 and 12, 12:30 – 2:00 PM

Flamenco is performed all over the world and is also part of the basic training of many ballet and modern dancers at schools such as the Pacific Northwest Ballet. In Flamenco footwork is mixed with beautiful upper body movement, performed with singing and guitar and deeply entrenched in rhythm. The first week we will work on movement in rhythms of 4 and the second week the more challenging rhythms of 12. We will practice basic technique with choreography and learn about how to perform with live musicians. Classes are taught by Melinda Hedgecorth.
