Flamenco dancing is known for its emotional intensity, proud carriage, expressive use of the arms and rhythmic stamping of the feet.

If you would like to be emotionally intense and stamp your feet, why not get that proud carriage ready and give this a try.

The flamenco, rumba and sevillanas class will offer an opportunity to study these dance styles that although seen throughout Spain, are more typically from Andalucía.  Sevillanas is a partner’s dance that, as the name implies, comes from Sevilla and is often danced at the feria de abril: “The April Fair” in Sevilla. Rumba is danced through Spain again at parties and gatherings, whereas other flamenco styles are more serious and require more technique. 

In the class we will study arm and hand movements, footwork, castanets and as choreography, we will look at Rumba and Sevillanas.

With new beginners’ classes, there will be a chance for everyone to learn this exciting dance and to progress to even more difficult routines! We expect the group to begin with a 50-min session, there will be a small charge for each session.
