Advanced Beginners/Sevillanas

Saturdays, 11:45am-1:30pm

Technique for increasing complexities and speed in footwork, upper body stylization, incorporating full body expression in choreography. Included in this level,

  • Palmas,
  • Musicality of palos
  • More depth of understanding compás with various palos.
  • Additional study of Sevillanas.  Sevillanas are a type of folk music and dance of Seville and its region. They were derived from the Seguiriya, an old Castilian folk music and dance genre. In the nineteenth century they were influenced by Flamenco. They have a relatively limited musical pattern but are rich in lyrics based on country life, virgins, country towns, neighborhoods, pilgrimage, and love theme

There is a $15 drop in fee, or all three sessions are $45 upfront.

Student and professional scholarship and discounts available upon request.

All classes are held at the 6411 Overbrook Garage Studio, Philadelphia, PA 19151.
