DANCE WORKSHOPS

 

Channel your inner gypsy fire – try some flamenco dance! Passion, coiling wrists, fluid arms and percussive footwork are hallmarks of Flamenco dance that are paralleled in the beautiful melodies and intricate rhythms of Flamenco music.

These workshops will introduce the participants to the basic elements of flamenco dance in a fun and easy-going way. No experience required.

 

Wear comfortable clothing; flamenco-inspired outfits are welcome. If possible wear sturdy shoes with a 1" - 2" heel for a satisfying stomp.
