The PyA Conservatory offers classes in flamenco for children ages 4-11 with instructor Monica Craun.
This class will focus on the basic technique of footwork, body alignment and movement of the upper body, arms and hands. The children will also be exposed to some of the cultural history of flamenco as the different rhythms of Tangos and Bulerias are explored. An understanding of the rhythms, music, palmas and a basic understanding of flamenco technique will be a great introduction to this artform for children of all ages.

Location: Overbrook Garage Studio
FIRST FRIDAY JUERGA
A juerga is a kind of flamenco jam session where there is no distinction between audience and performers and everyone takes part, supporting each other in collective playing, singing, and dancing.
The unique component in Pasión y Arte’s juergas is that the invitation to participate is open to all genres of music, singing, dance, and spoken word. Special guest musicians and dancers – both professional flamencos, students, aficionados, artists from other Latino and non-Latino traditions – are invited to each juerga.
Location: 6411 Overbrook Avenue, Philadelphia
BYOB and please bring snacks to share!
