Flamenco courses for beginners.
Flamenco is a culture with deep roots originating in southern Spain, which forms of expression are singing, dancing and guitar playing.
Dance is related to the fire - a passionate, emotional, and powerful expression.
It is like a journey into the world of the deepest emotions, returning from which a person feels oneself brighter, internally enhanced. Dance is intense and decent, the use of arms is expressive and a rhythmic tap-technique of legs is used.
There are various forms of Flamenco, which reflect different characters and emotions.
In Flamenco classes we will learn the Spanish folk dance sevillanase, basic steps and technique of Flamenco dances. Step by step we start the fire and power in ourselves that lies in Flamenco and in us - the dancers.
