Observers/guests/family/friends are not able to sit in on this class.

There is no obligation to perform! If you are a current student but have missed a lot of classes this session or are uncomfortable performing, please do join us as an audience member to get a taste of what other students have learned, see some inspirational video, and meet other flamencos in our community. If you’re not performing, you should plan to arrive just before 7pm.

6:30 – review of pieces learned
depending on how much studio is available, we will split up by level or will take turns in the studio for a quick review
7:00 – group warm up and presentation of pieces
7:30 – we will watch some flamenco video clips and then head off for a coffee at a local cafe for food/beverage/conversation

Classes with Carmen Ledesma

What a great week of classes with Carmen Ledesma last week! It was an utter privilege to have her back in Edmonton. Thanks to Nyles Varughese for accompanying on guitar and a special thanks to the students that traveled in from Calgary and Regina. I am grateful for funding from the Alberta Dance Alliance Community Workshop series and collaboration from the Edmonton Flamenco Festival and Maria Serrano in Toronto (sorry for my blurry camera shots).

 

Next Session of Classes

My next session of classes will begin near the end of January. Review classes may be offered earlier in the month. Information will be posted in mid December.

thanks for a great Fall session!

Carmen Ledesma registration

Direct from Spain, flamenco dancer Carmen Ledesma returns to Edmonton for workshops from November 22nd – 24th, 2019! A featured artist at the first Edmonton Flamenco Festival in 2017, she is a favourite of audiences and students alike.

With funding from the Alberta Dance Alliance – Community Workshop Series, I am collaborating with the Edmonton Flamenco Festival to bring this workshop about. Here on only her second visit to Canada, also stopping in Toronto – it is a thrill to present an opportunity to study with Carmen in Edmonton.

Workshops are open to the public. Some previous flamenco experience required.

Are you registered in my current Fall session classes? With the exception of Level IV, one Friday night class with Carmen was included in your session fees. A $40 discount applies when you register.

Flamenco Updates – Carmen Ledesma and Fall Registration

News in this update:

  • Carmen Ledesma returns!
  • Fall session class registration now available

Carmen Ledesma returns!

Carmen Ledesma
At long last, I can announce – Direct from Spain, flamenco dancer Carmen Ledesma returns to Edmonton for workshops from November 22nd – 24th, 2019! A featured artist at the first Edmonton Flamenco Festival in 2017, she is a favourite of audiences and students alike. Registration information is coming soon.

FALL SESSION CLASS REGISTRATION NOW AVAILABLE

I’m excited to announce that both of our guest teachers from Spain are part of the dance class session this fall. Some of their classes are included in my class session and fees. Farru will be teaching instead of me on Friday, November 1st and Carmen Ledesma will on Friday, November 22nd.

If you have already registered for Farru’s class and are planning to attend my fall session, you may deduct the amount you paid from the total when you register for my classes. Please just make a note in the Additional Comments section so I remember why.

For the first time since 2010, my class fees have gone up slightly this fall, including the drop-in rate which is now $22/hr.

This session fee is also slightly higher to help accommodate our guest teachers. If you find you need to choose between my class session and a few classes with them, please do choose to take from our guests. It is an experience you would pay a fortune to get to have in Spain and we are incredibly lucky to have both of them here in Edmonton as even getting class with them in Spain is difficult.

hope to see you this Fall!
