Flamenco is a dance from the Andalucian region of Spain, with roots in Indian, Arabic, and Roman music. This class includes active physical participation. Lose your inhibitions as we explore the history, culture, basic dance elements, and evolution of this passionate art form. Each class session will focus on different movements and percussion, such as brazeos (armwork), taconeos (footwork), palmas (claps), and jaleos (shouts to cheer on the singers, guitarists, or dancers). We will also study some palos (rhythms) and choreographies. Hard, heeled shoes or boots are highly recommended in this class designed for both men and women.
