Summer Technique

The summer term has begun but it’s not too late to register!

We’ve got classes for every level that can help you acquire new dance skills, meet new people or just get some fun summer exercise!

In a technique classic you will learn the fundamentals of flamenco and learn to perfect your footwork, your posture and arms. You will have the opportunity to increase your strength and muscle stamina as you learn to gracefully move your body and understand the complex rhythms of flamenco music.

If you’ve never done flamenco before, it’s never too late to start! If you’ve never danced before, that shouldn’t stop you from trying something new!

Contact the studio today to learn about flamenco and which class is right for you! See you at the studio!
