University students who want to earn extra credits while learning or perfecting their flamenco dance skills.
Every day from Monday to Friday, you will have three hours of flamenco dance. An hour and a half dedicated to dance technique and another hour and a half to study the specific choreography of a flamenco style or palo, which will change every two weeks. In this way you can cover a wide variety of styles.
During the technique class, different warm-up exercises are done every day, tapping, marking, turns, setbacks, arms, hands and balance and positioning of the body. All the elements involved in the dance are practiced, without the need to learn a complete choreography. Normally, different dance phrases are worked on for different flamenco styles: alegrías, bulerías, seguiriya, etc. Recorded music is sometimes used to perform the exercises.
Every two weeks you learn a different choreography for one of the most common flamenco styles. Depending on the level, some sticks or others are worked on. At the beginner level, they usually work with tangos, alegrías, fandangos and bulerías. At the intermediate level, dance por alegrías, soleá por bulerías, bulerías, jaleos, fandangos, tientos, tangos or seguiriya, among others, is normally studied. At the advanced level it is possible to study any style, but the most common are: alegrías, soleá por bulerías, caña, seguiriya, martinete, soleá, taranto, tientos, farruca, tangos, bulerías, jaleos, fandangos, guajira or rondeña, among others .
Special importance is given to studying the compás and the style of each style, its character and the way each dance is executed, as well as the relationship with the guitar and cante.
Starting at the level that corresponds to you, you will progress through the levels of flamenco dance offered by the school. The progress that you make will be followed closely by a tutor who will be assigned to you at the beginning of the course and who will be able to advise you on your evolution and academic needs. He will therefore help you decide when you should change levels.
These courses are complemented by the courses Knowing Flamenco: Knowing the Compás, Knowing the Structure of the Dance, Knowing the Singing, Knowing the History.
