Group Dance Class
Marie offers a thorough, rigorous technical formation, giving students the necessary tools to comprehend movement and musicality in flamenco dance. Classes focus on mechanical precision, understanding of the what/why/when/how and musical comprehension, allowing students to acquire the means to express their individuality and develop autonomy.
Throughout the course of time, students will be encouraged to develop their postural consciousness, listening capacities and general artistic sensitivity, and acquire a better control of energy, as well as becoming familiar with the basis of every palo's specific interpretation.
Classes are accompanied by musicians, developing the musicianship necessary for flamenco and live performance.
