INTERSECTIONS Master ClassFebruary 20, 2013
On Stage at Diana Wortham Theatre
Flamenco Vivo/Carlota Santana offers classes that range from beginners to advanced levels. All classes increase the participant's awareness and understanding of flamenco dance and its cultural heritage. The classes include a brief history of the origins of flamenco dance, music and song and how the various cultures that inhabited Spain have influenced flamenco.
This is a hands-on workshop with instruction in rhythmic handclaps (palmas), arm movements (braceo), body posturing, and footwork (taconeo). The class is supportive and fun, and flamenco technique is woven into a short choreography. By the end of the class the participants will be able to “perform” a simple choreographed dance.
Following the class, dancers can extend the experience by gathering for Spanish food with a cocktail style menu (tapas) and a glass of sangria at Curate. www.curatetapasbar.com$30 per person which includes the class fee and taxes and gratuity for the Curate reception.
