Imagine a world where Bull Fighters strut in an arena, Gypsies dance with twirling wrists and graceful arms around a sparkling river, or where a Spanish Señorita moves as elegantly and naturally as a ballerina while dancing among friends. This is the world of Flamenco, where every person, no matter what shape or body type can discover their inner strength and grace in dance. Lead by Estefanía, class participants will learn basic foot steps, body positioning, and the flow of arm/hand movement. No choreography for this class. Repetition of steps to a passionate fiery Flamenco song list will keep our focus on dancing for fun while building our self-confidence and coordination. Partner not required for this class
Class attire: Comfortable pants-yoga pants, clothing that stretches and allows you to move easily. Full skirt, floor length cotton skirt is good. Shirt can be form-fitting, loose or leotard. For class we recommend comfortable flat shoes, breathable canvas. Socks/bare feet are fine. Shoes with a low wide hard heel are acceptable. Character shoes and flamenco shoes are acceptable. No flip-flops. Think easy for balance. The steps are simple, but we repeat them a lot it can be considered a light aerobic workout. Bring water bottle.
Escuela de Ritmo We believe that Flamenco is a tradition, music and dance form that is accessible to everyone. This ancient craft, forces us to pull away from our everyday ideals and thinking. To open our minds to a culture oceans away from our own, yet there are sparks that touch us that are tangeable. The humanity in Flamenco bewitches us all and sets us on a journey of the self. It is a way to explore our own inner beings. When we set challenges and goals for ourselves in a safe environment, we are really practicing or training for the struggles that we actually face in life everyday. We train our minds, our bodies, our spirit to be positive. Thru dance, complex rhythm, guitar or singing we acquire the experience and skill to face the world with fearlessness, grace and energy.
Please Check our Workshop/Tour page to find out where we are all year!
Class attire: Comfortable pants-yoga pants work great. Full skirt. Form fitting shirt or leotard. Hard soled shoes with wide low heel.
What People Are Saying About Classes with Escuela De Ritmo Luis De La Tota:
“Hanging out at the Pena Chacon with Luis, you start to realize that this man eats, drinks, lives, breathes flamenco, inventing bulerias letras on the fly about random people that walk into the bar and random situations. Alas, you realize that he was born with it.” KASANDRA “LA CHINA” Vancouver, BC
“Ole !!!! I wish I were in Boise!”
Marianna Mejia Flamenco Romantico Studio, Santa Cruz CA
