Introduction to Castanets and Spanish Classical Forms
This class is for new students and/or experienced students interested in learning the castanets. Castanets are a percussive instrument and are an essential instrument for Classic Espanol which is a style based on principles of classical ballet infused with Iberian stying and temperament making it a unique art form. I highly emphasize the importance of this class as it is required if you are interested in learning dances such as the Sevillanas and the Malaguenas. This class improves students immensely in terms of the work that is done on positioning, coordination and balance as well as vueltas turns. You will need to purchase castanets for this course. I only have a few pairs available to borrow. I can advise on how to order them or I can place a group order with a good company that I am familiar with. Email me for pricing.
Registration: $135 for 8 weeks (includes taxes)

TUESDAYS from 5:00-6:00pm

TUESDAYS from 6:30-7:30pm
September 5 – October 31 (9 weeks taught by Valerie Scannura)
FLAMENCO DRILL AND TECHNIQUE CLASS – MIXED LEVEL
We have had many students interested in a pure “drill style” class that will not involve learning choreography. I am offering this course for 9 weeks with the option to continue to let students get a taste for this type of class which will allow me to delve into areas of technique that students need to master such as all areas of strength and stamina pertaining to footwork. This should also be taken alongside choreography classes.
Registration: $150 for 9 weeks

TUESDAYS from 7:30-8:30pm
September 5 – December 12 (15 weeks with Valerie Scannura)
INTERMEDIATE LEVEL FLAMENCO CHOREOGRAPHY TBA
This is going to be our most popular level this year as many of our students are still training at this range of between 2-6 yrs. I have placed this class purposely after the drill class and before the Intermediate castanet class because ideally, students should take advantage of this placement and take 2 or all 3 of these Tuesday classes. This will be a popular class so advance registration is necessary to reserve your spots.
Registration: $255 for 15 weeks

TUESDAYS from 8:30-9:20 (50 mins)
September 5 – December 12 (15 wks. with Valerie Scannura)
INTERMEDIATE CASTANET and CLASSICAL TECNIQUE
This course is continuing at Intermediate levels. Students will continue the art of playing the castanets and will learn more complicated drills, turns and choreographic sequences. I would like to choreograph a famous classical piece from the opera “Carmen”!! and am excited to choreograph this timeless music compased by Bizet.

WEDNESDAY from 6:30-7:30pm
INTRODUCTION TO FLAMENCO

This class has seen much development in the past several years by using propos such as fans and shawls so this year, I would like to move on to performing with Bata and castanets in the cante hondo form of Siguiriyas which is the most suited to the performance of castanets. The recent revival in Spain with dancers such as Olga Pericet and Mercedes Ruiz of dancing with the bata and castanets have inspired me to teach a soulful dance with beautiful use of braceo arms and rhythmic expression.
