Intro to Flamenco Workshop @ The Rhody Center
Feb 24 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
Intro to Flamenco Workshop @ The Rhody Center | Coventry | Rhode Island | United States

In this workshop you will be introduced to flamenco dance. Flamenco is a very passionate dance form that ranges from fiery and exciting to very lighthearted and playful, while always displaying purposeful and thoughtful movement. No previous experience is necessary! Using flamenco’s 12 count palos (rhythms) Solea and Solea por Bulerias, we will develop our upper to lower body coordination through palmas (hand clapping), braceo (armwork) and zapateado (footwork) exercises. We will also take some time to review the Sevillanas from the previous session. Wear comfortable clothing and a comfortable shoe with a leather sole and slight heel. (Women and female-identified folks, if you have a long, flowing skirt and clean character shoes/comfortable shoes with a low, solid heel, please bring them! Men, if you have a clean pair of dress shoes or boots with a leather sole, perfect!) Led by Elizabeth Rivera. $25, or $20 through 2/5.

About the featured film: “The Human Experiment lifts the veil on the shocking reality that thousands of untested, unregulated chemicals are in the products we use every day, our homes, and inside each of us. Simultaneously, disease rates are rising: everything from cancer to infertility is appearing at levels doctors and researchers have never seen.”
