Arizona Flamenco Taller
Flamenco workshops are a way to expose yourself to new techniques, alternative ways of moving, and unfamiliar styles. It is very comfortable to continue studying with the same teacher, but you will learn more and stretch yourself by going to workshops, especially when they are taught by masters. Flamenco requires dedication and exploration so you can develop your own expression through the art. Arizona flamencos, take advantage of this opportunity to develop yourself… no airfare or hotels required!

About the workshop:
This workshop is geared toward students with some prior knowledge of flamenco. It is an intermediate level, so an understanding of the rhythms and techniques is expected.
Flamenco is a performing art from Andalucia, Spain. It manifests in three forms; the singing, the dancing, and the music, most commonly guitar. The heart of flamenco is the singing, the cante. Cante is the root of all flamenco, and the song forms, called palos, are what defines the rhythmic structure and melody played by the guitar or other accompanying instruments. The cante has roots in Arabic, Judaic, and Gypsy cultures, which coexisted over centuries in the south of Spain.
Flamenco as it is recognized today has been around for around 150 years, but it’s roots run far deeper into the past.
