Flamenco Flair for Improv

This workshop takes us on a trip to Southern Spain with a focus on Flamenco-inspired movements for improvisational dancers of all styles. In the workshop we look at Flamenco-inspired steps and technique from several improvisational Tribal-style formats including ATS®, Devi Mamak (Australia), and my own creations for Tribal Moon dialect. This workshop can be taken alone or in preparation for the Mantón for Improvisation workshop. Perfect for the soloist for group improv, this Flamenco Flair workshop is for anyone interested in expanding improvisational Flamenco-inspired technique. Get ready to move, have fun and say Ole!
