Hola friends, if you’ve always wanted to try flamenco, be welcome to join me, Tania in any of my pure beginners classes.
Let me tell you about it.
LEVEL: BEGINNERS FLAMENCO FOR LEISURE STUDENTS
Beginners Flamenco for leisure students has a nice and easy pace.
You’ll learn movement and groove to rhythms that should be relatively easy for enjoyment.
This is different from training classes, where students focus on skills and mastering their learning.
Leisure classes are pleasure classes, for fun and stimulating times in an encouraging group setting.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPERIENCE?
Each week we explore a little dance, so you can have a feel of the style, enjoy the song and music.
By the end of the session, you should be able to feel like you’re dancing a little dance.
Bear in mind that flamenco is an art, it takes YEARS to dance with quality of movement, technique and expression.
So in your first foray, simply have a flavour of flamenco.
And see if this art calls you further.
That’s how I started, when my Aussie friend, pulled me to our first class in Adelaide.
And from there, I just followed the call of flamenco. It turned into a passion, and into my profession! You can read my story here.
CAN YOU DO A TRIAL OR SINGLE CLASS?
Beginner Flamenco for leisure classes are standalone ones. So you can drop in for a trial single class.
You do need to contact Tania (email: email@example.com) to reserve your spot.
REGULAR CLASSES VS WORKSHOPS
I conduct my classes in seasons when I am in Singapore (each season is like a term of 3 months of weekly classes)
So if you are looking for a regular series of classes, then you can consider these short and sweet terms (which have a package discount).
If you prefer single sessions, then you can consider dropping into the Beginner’s weekly classes.
Or do once-off lifestyle workshops. These can be those that I conduct as part of the Esplanade’s annual da:ns festival or series.
So subscribe to my newsletters to stay informed.
When I am based overseas in Spain, there students can learn via Live online classes (small groups or one-to-one coaching), or self-paced Video-on-demand courses. Contact me to find out more.
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO WEAR?
For starters, beginners do not need any special attire or shoes.
You can simply wear gym attire, such as a top, leggings and comfortable shoes for movement, or non-slip socks.
It would be good if also bring a flare skirt (up till knee or calf). That way, you can learn the way we pick up skirts and move our arms.
Get to know the art first. Importantly, consider whether you’d like to go on learning for a committed period before you think about getting skirts and shoes.
