The theme of the workshop is the importance of listening. A workout for our flamenco ears! We will work with marcajes, remates, some foot technique and improvisation exercises. All with strong emphasis on our flamenco ear and rhythm, musicality and playfulness. Collective work on the joys of flamenco groove, with both humour and sincerity. It will be great!
Open level for participants with previous flamenco dance experience.
