Intro to Flamenco - 6:00 to 7:30pm with Juana Cala

No Experience Necessary!  This class is for anyone who is new to flamenco.  We will take you through the basics of flamenco technique, movement phrases and flamenco rhythms. This class is taught in a 7-week session that gives you a broader understanding of flamenco and its origins.

Flamenco I – 7:30 to 9:00pm with Juana Cala

This class is focused toward the student who wishes to gain command of flamenco technique, rhythm and style.  It begins to explore more complex marking and footwork steps, culminating in a full choreography.  Each class builds upon the other throughout the session.
