      University students who want to get extra credits while learning or perfecting their flamenco dance competence.

      Everyday from Monday to Friday, you’ll take three hours of flamenco dance. An hour and a half will be dedicated to studying technique and the other hour and a half to studying the choreography of the different styles or “palos” of flamenco. By focusing on one different style per week, you will get a deeper understanding of the great variety in flamenco dance.

      Each day students begin with different warm-up exercises, and are instructed in footwork, “marcajes” or upper body movement, turns, counter-time rhythms, arm positioning, hand positioning, balance and body placement. They practice all the components of the dance without needing to learn entire choreographies. Typically, students work on different aspects of the various flamenco styles: alegrías, bulerías, seguiriya, etc., at times using recorded music for their training.

      Every two weeks students learn a different choreography of the most common flamenco dances, changing “palos” or styles depending on student level. The beginner level usually focuses on tangos, alegrías, fandangos and bulerías. At the intermediate level, students normally study alegrías, soleá por bulerías, bulerías, jaleos, fandangos, tientos, tangos or seguiriya, among others. At the advanced level, it’s possible to study an array of dances with the most frequently studied being the alegrías, soleá por bulerías, caña, seguiriya, martinete, soleá, taranto, tientos, farruca, tangos, bulerías, jaleos, fandangos, guajira or rondeña, among others. The students train with guitar accompaniment for half of their time in all the levels.

      We place the most importance on the study of the “compás” or rhythm and the distinct styles of flamenco, its characteristics, and how to encapsulate and express it all in the different movements of the dances in conjunction with the accompanying guitar and voice.

      Starting at the level that best meets your needs, you’ll move up through the distinct levels while your progress is closely monitored by a tutor assigned to you at the beginning of your course work. He or she will be available for advice concerning your dance training and academic needs and will help you decide when it’s the right time to change to a different level.

      These courses are complemented with the courses Understanding Flamenco: Understanding the Compás, Understanding the Structure of the Dance, Understanding the Cante and  Understandingthe History.
