Bulerias de Jerez Workshop with Gloria de Jerez
Bulerías is a fiesta-style dance from Jerez de la Frontera, Spain. It is the most improvisational form of flamenco and probably the silliest and fun as well. It is what we see at parties and at the end of flamenco shows. It is a dance from the pueblo for ALL people to do, not just “dancers.”
Gloria de Jerez will teach:
- Learn the basics of bulerías and how they fit with the cante
- Palmas de bulerias de Jerez
- Put them into practice
