"To see her, as she moved, nudging the dress around, treating it as if it were a partner, was to understand the process whereby a modern person could fall in love with an old art."

Joan Acocella about Eva Yerbabuena

Flamenco Latino offers a new class in Cante (flamenco singing) for beginners. Most classes will be led by Alfonso Cid with a couple of sessions led by Basilio Georges and Aurora Reyes on the established material.

In this course, students will learn the basics of flamenco singing, emphasizing diaphragmatic breathing and voice placement or „impostatción.‰ The class will start building upon basic cante repertoire such as sevillanas, tangos, fandangos and rumbas. The class will also focus on flamenco rhythms and handclapping, flamenco scales and terminology so students can communicate in the traditional lingo with guitarists and flamenco dancers.

Lyrics and translations of the „letras‰ will be provided. The course is
taught in English, and no previous knowledge of music or Spanish is
required. It is ideal for people who want to deepen their understanding of flamenco music or for flamenco dancers who want to broaden their experience of this art form.

This semester-long workshop will focus on the Abanico (Spanish fan) and will give its traditionally feminine, coquettish and twirly character a new twist. Through technical exercises and choreography, you will explore the abanico as a percussive instrument and a visual punctuation. The class choreography will be por Bulería and will diverge from flamenco’s structural norm.
