Its creators, the gypsies, came to Andalusia which was the perfect place for developing their music.
In time, flamenco was modernised and nowadays one can find it fused with blues, jazz or even more modern rhythms.
From a dancing point of view, flamenco was combined with contemporary dances giving it a more modern touch.
As teachers, our goal is to help understand, feel and dance flamenco and to express the emotions that flow when hearing the guitar playing.
Normally, the course consists of 6 hours (4 sessions of one and a half hours).
Students are taught how to follow the beat, the arm and hand movements, and the foot movements and how to bend.
Suitable clothes for the lessons are:
- Female: a tight blouse (for the correction of the back), a long, wide skirt and heeled shoes.
- Male: long trousers, tight shirt and heeled shoes/boots.
