BEGINNER FLAMENCO TECHNIQUE: This class will center around learning and improving students' understanding of the following core flamenco dance principles:

• Proper posture and body positioning (colocación)
• Percussive footwork (zapateo); including the parts of the feet used to make sound; the ball of the foot (planta), the heel (tacón), the whole foot (golpe), and the point of the toe (punta)
• Movement of the arms/port de bras (braceo) and the circular movement of the hands (floreo)
• Basic turns (vueltas)
• Simple movement patterns that mark the beat (marcaje)
• Two types of rhythmic hand-clapping (palmas sordas/palmas altas)
• Basic understanding of select flamenco rhythms (palos)
• Locomotor movements across the floor will combine skills of the upper and lower body.
