Each week class will focus on a different aspect of Flamenco-a traditional Spanish dance. Learners will work on technique of arm work, foot work, steps/combinations, rhythm and clapping, castanets and the course will end with your learner dancing a short choreography to a Rumba Flamenco in full Flamenco fanfare and costume. Each Monday I will post a class video that will include the lesson for the week. Interacting with your peers- The classroom is a positive and unique learning environment....
Your child will learn beginner Flamenco movements in a creative learning environment. They will also learn a choreography to a short Rumba dance which will teach them various patterns. In addition, they will learn about the history of Flamenco and learn about various artists known in Flamenco. Studies show that music, art, theater and dance are crucial to the development of our children’s critical thinking and communication skills. Through flamenco, children will acquire the tools for exploring self-expression, while simultaneously opening the door to Spanish culture and language. Through their voices, hand clapping and through the movement of their arms and feet, children are encouraged to interpret the poetry that is sung, and the mood created by flamenco music.
Students should practice steps and movements at least three times a week for optimal dance experience. Weekly activities will be completed individually and should be presented by each Monday. Each activity should take no longer than 15 minutes.
If available, a hard wood surface would help in the production of sound. Character shoes or shoes with a small heel would also help with sound production. Girls should wear a leotard or form fitting top, have a long skirt that is light and can move freely. Boys should have a form fitted t-shirt and exercise pants for easy movement. For activity 1- No supplies needed. For activity 2-learner could use an empty container; or 2 plastic spoons, plastic egg and rice; any materials to make a percusion instrument. For activity 3-picture of a Flamenco dancer will be provided. Supplies could include crayon, markers, water colors, colorful tissue paper and glue. For activity 4- If dressing up, girls could have a flower for hair, scarf or shall, black top and any color long skirt. For boys, white t-shirt, black pants and a vest or scarf for neck tie.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No live meetings, and maybe some time outside of class.
Learners should have an open workout space, wear a leotard or fitted top, proper footwear and a water bottle. If your child has long hair, it should be pulled back into a ponytail or bun. Students are responsible for listening to their bodies and should discontinue a movement if it feels uncomfortable to prevent injuries.
