Flamenco Dance - Elementary

Flamenco Dance - Elementary

Our Flamenco Elementary (Choreography & Technique) is the next level up from our Flamenco Improvers, and aims to develop coordination and style while introducing you to longer and more challenging choreographies. This will help to broaden your skills and understanding of flamenco. 

The course starts with a full body warm up with exercises for posture, arms and hands followed by basic footwork to improve strength and speed. Basic knowledge of footwork is expanded upon through footwork combination technique exercises. Marking steps and basic turns are taught within the choreography, to improve core strength, balance and correct transference of weight. 

You will cover...

  • Improve arm and body coordination.
  • Develop good muscle memory for steps through repetition and correction.
  • Improve general technique and core stability.
  • Learn both technique and choreography to expand on their knowledge of both.
  • Improve their understanding of expression and dynamics when dancing flamenco. 

Location

La Escuela de Baile.

All City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries. So whilst they're training you they may also be rehearsing for a West End show or working on a movie. We like that and we do believe it makes a difference in class.
