Day 2: Dual Tracks: “Get in Gear/Dig Deeper”
Beginning students solidify knowledge of tangos structure, intermediate/advanced students “dig deeper” into remates, contestaciones, salidas, footwork, organization, musical process and accenting. Students will have a chance to work with each other live in the class or attend as an observer only to glean a better understanding of how the parts (singing, dance and guitar) make a whole in flamenco. ALL Guitarists, singers and dancers are encouraged to bring their remates, respiros, marking steps, salidas, estribillos and escobillas to class to deepen their understanding of the Tangos structure. Participants should bring paper and pens as well their dance shoes, guitars, and capos. Audio recording allowed. Any video recording or internet posting must have Artist’s approval.
