Workshops

Saturday 9 July 2022

Flamenco dance masterclasses with Noemí Luz.
• 1.00-2.15pm: Bata de Cola (general level). Discover a harmonious approach to movement with the train skirt, initiating a beautiful conversation with the skirt and with your own dancing. You will learn techniques that embrace freedom with the skirt whilst preventing injury. This workshop is open to all levels whether experienced or not. If you do not have a skirt let Noemí know. Please bring comfortable trousers or leggings as you will study movements without the skirt on first. Participants must wear flamenco shoes.
• 2.10-3.45pm: Bulerías – Pataítas in Practice (Intermediate level). This course will break down the language of Bulerías to help you understand all the components that make up this lively palo so you feel confident participating in flamenco parties and “fin de fiestas”. You will learn fun new material and improvisational tools, and analyse the cante (singing) to gain a practical understanding of how this style works.
Cost: Bata de Cola £25, Bulerias £28, or £40 for both classes. For more information contact Noemí at noemiluzflamenco@gmail.com.
Venue: The Dance Attic, 368 North End Road, Fulham, London SW6 1LY
