Anual dance course

DESIGNED FOR

Beginners in flamenco dance, who possess some knowledge in other dance disciplines.

 


 

COURSE AIM

The aim of the 1st Dance Course is to introduce the students to the technical, rhythmical and expression of flamenco dance, first through the styles closest to Andalusian Folklore (Fandangos de Huelva and Abandolados), and then on to other basic flamenco rhythms (Tangos, Cantiñas and Solea/Soleá por Bulerías), apart from assimilating the classical structures by learning simple choreographies.

Another aim of this course, is to introduce the students to the interaction with the traditional codes of the guitar and singing accompaniment in the Alegrías. The student will also learn to use the palillos (castanets) and the mantón (shawl), fundamental accessories of the Sevillian School Dance.

 


 

SUBJECTS

The academic program includes theoretical and practical subjects like technique, styles, and accompaniment methods from Monday through Friday. The 1st year Basic Dance course consists of three core subjects (common to all specialities), one of them optional.
The expected level of competence is described in detail in the general school curriculum of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd year in each of the three specialities.
