Flamenco is a complex art form that requires a deep understanding of its rich socio-cultural history, its diverse body of rhythms, the correlation between the singing, the music and the dancing, as well as mastering the complex coordination of footwork, arms, hand, head, body movements. This introductory class will focus on exposing the students to all of these elements, while learning choreographies appropriate for this level.
Marisela Fleites has been teaching Flamenco in the Puget Sound region for 18 years, and has been learning and dancing flamenco for more than 55 years. Her dedication to her students, her love and passion for this art form, make her classes very encouraging and fun.
