Friday, March 29th flamenco dance classes cancelled.
A reminder that all dance classes are cancelled on Friday, March 29th. If you missed last Friday’s classes I will have your refund at the final class. Cante classes are still running with Irena Dumicz from 6 – 7.
Friday, April 5th final group class 6:30 – 8:00 (dancers) 7:00 – 8:00 (singers).
A reminder that the final group class for all students is Friday, April 5th. Students will all get a chance to review their material from 6:30 – 7:00 as below. We only have two rooms so please be there for your timeslot if you want to review.
- 6:30 – 6:40 – Tangos letra and Solea
- 6:40 – 6:50 – Alegrias and Bulerias
- 6:50 – 7:00 – Tangos footwork and Cante
- 7:00 – 8:00 – combined class for all levels
This is an informal opportunity for each class to perform their dance or song for the other students and to see what other classes have been learning. We will finish with a few videos to watch and coffee at a local café afterwards. It’s a really fun night and a great way to end the semester. There is no obligation to perform.
*Please note that the group class is for current students only. Guests are not allowed.
If you registered but have missed a lot of classes or had to withdraw from class this semester, please feel free to come to the final class as an observer to see what others have been doing, watch some videos with us and meet other members of the community. It’s a fun night.

Weekend cante (song) classes with Ismael Fernández – for all levels.
I highly encourage everyone to attend. These classes are designed to practice singing as a group and even if you are not interested in singing beyond the class, are invaluable for deepening your understanding of the dance. Never been to a cante class before? Not to worry we tend to all help each other out. These are fun classes with a lot of students attending.
