Flamenco Dance Classes with Sarah Chambers
Flamenco dance classes, suitable for beginners and improvers. Come along if you have not tried flamenco dance before, or if it has been a while and you are a bit rusty! Don’t worry if you didn’t make it to the previous classes!
Dancers at a higher level are very welcome to come and brush up on footwork, palmas and structure.
Absolute beginners who have never danced flamenco before are invited to come to a separate class to learn the basics before joining the group. This will be at a discounted price if booked at the same time as the Introduction course.
The first hour covers basic flamenco technique and the different percussive dance steps, compas (rhythm), palmas (clapping) and body work. The second class teaches alegrias choreography.
Sarah is a music graduate from the University of Manchester, with experience of teaching music since her teenage years and many years experience of teaching flamenco classes in schools, with adult groups and privately. She has been dancing flamenco for 14 years, performing regularly with guitarists and singers at a wide range of events. She continues to expand her knowledge and technique with regular study with professional performers in the UK and Spain.
