Bulerias Workshop




Due to the success of this bulerias structure workshop and the positive comments and feedback from students we are having a second one!!! A workshop to explore the compas and structure of buleria dance. We will explore the purpose of each segment: marcaje, llamada, escobilla, remate by applying them to 2 different buleria verses. The objective is to better understand 1. how the compas can be broken down into simpler stuctures, and 2. how the dance fits around the song. We will also investigate the general tone, themes, origins and attitude of Bulerias as a dance.

Ballet for Flamenco Workshop    


Classical Ballet for Flamenco Dancers
A Workshop to Improve Technique and Body Awareness

Why Ballet ?
The technique of classical ballet originated in the courts of the Italian and French Renaissance and has developed over centuries. Today it provides the foundation for virtually every dance genre. It has the power to transform your dancing by developing strength, control, balance, co-ordination, flow of movement and a sense of good alignment. For the professional dancer, regular classes are essential to gain a high level of technical expertise. But if you’ve ever wondered how to get some of that technical knowledge without the daily grind of training, now is your opportunity!

What to Expect ?
We have put together a workshop that highlights some of the fundamental principles of classical technique. There will be exercises and explanations to help you understand these principles followed by direct applications to your flamenco dancing.
The session will include centre work, arm work, good posture, core stability, tips on turns and how to understand body alignment, spatial orientation and sense of direction.
All ages and levels of flamenco dancer are accommodated. So you need not be concerned that you won’t have enough energy or flexibility to cope, we are not focusing on the athletic aspects of Ballet!

What to Wear ?
Wear your usual flamenco skirt, shoes and top, but ladies be ready to remove the skirt for some of the work, ie. wear tights, leggings underneath or bring track-suit bottoms to slip on.


Day: TBC

Time: 1-2.30pm

Fee: £20
