Flamenco - Lower Intermediate

Flamenco - Lower Intermediate

At this level all students should have studied flamenco for at least two years, as knowledge and understanding of rhythm is necessary. In this Flamenco Lower Intermediate (Choreography & Technique) course, you will build on the skills gained in the Flamenco Higher Elementary course.

Your course will be structured around a warm up with general technique exercises for feet, arms, turns and bodywork. You will be building on skills learnt in the Elementary levels. Choreography is taught methodically and through repetition for each individual element, concentrating on technique and also on the mood and style of the chosen ‘palo’, further developing the content and structure each week. 

You will aim to correct technique with emphasis on expression within the style being taught. 

You will cover...

  • Improve posture and lines and fluidity in their dancing.
  • Learn the mood and style of the chosen ‘palo’.
  • Improve style, incorporating more intricate hand movements.
  • Increase speed and stamina and understanding of flamenco.

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.
