Posted by admin - July 2nd, 2021

Flamenco Communication Intensive “in person”
with Marija Temo and Guest Artist, Kerensa DeMars

Cuadro coaching/Por Fiesta Class/Cuadro Performances/Juerga/Observe

(Thurs- Sat.) Aug. 26- 28, 2021

Cuadro Coaching & Performances
This year’s intensive is an exciting opportunity for you to work on your communication skills with a group of singers, guitarists, dancers, and palmeros together. Known as a ‘cuadro’ in Flamenco performances, the cuadro groups will be coached together and perform together.

Each student will have the opportunity to work at their level as a performer or as a cuadro member in a support role with other participants.  Students will be assigned to one of  two cuadro groups of dancers, singers, and guitarists to work with for the three days.  What will be addressed: Improving flamenco communication skills for any problem areas that surface, how to fix things on the fly, and support your fellow artists with good palmas, jaleo, and seco playing (muffled playing) . Besides working with each other, players, singers, and dancers in cuadro style will get to work with Marija and Kerensa. The intensive will culminate in a performance with two cuadro groups planning their set list and performing for each other.

Por Fiesta classes
In addition, a por fiesta class for all levels will be offerred. Por fiesta refers to fun, energetic group numbers in bulerias or tangos. Dancers perform a small series of movements accompanied with singing, guitar accompaniment, and palmas. In performance, dancers dance one after the other with various singers. Por Fiesta students are encouraged to participate in the fin de fiesta part of the Cuadro performances if they so wish with their own repertoire, performing the material taught in the por fiesta class, or participating with palmas.  Por Fiesta students will be assigned a cuadro group for the fin de fiesta part of the performance.

Everyone will have an opportunity to participate in the performance if they wish. The performances will be recorded for your personal use following the intensive.

Juerga (Flamenco Party)
Sat. after the Cuadro Performances at the Church where the Intensive is being held.

Observe:  Observation fees are for those persons not registering for the Cuadro coaching or Por Fiesta classes; otherwise all student registered may observe the Cuadro coaching and Por Fiesta classes for free.

Flamenco Revealed Online Wkshp w/ Kerensa DeMars & Marija Temo, 7/17/21

Posted by admin - July 1st, 2021

Flamenco Revealed Online Workshop (for dancers, guitarists, and singers)
w/ Kerensa DeMars & Marija Temo

Sat. July 17TH
1-2:30PM CST (2-3:30p.m. EST/ 11-12:30 PT)

Staying in Shape(s)
POSTPONED

Despite the cheeky title this workshops covers a very important part of flamenco communication – how the dancer moves on stage and the shapes she/he creates. Using a section of a dance (escobilla transition to a letra) we’ll look at how the dancer cues the singer and guitarist by the way they move from one place to the next and what happens when the movement isn’t clear. Guitarists will have a chance to work with understanding the pattern/shapes the dancer creates so they can anticipate the sequence and find a strong musical accompaniment. Singers will work on anticipating cues so they can relax and do some jaleo and feel confident about when the letra comes in. Dancers will look at how their shapes/patterns are read by the musicians and how to give clear signals.

Dancers who register by Wednesday July 14th will receive a prep video that includes the choreography we’ll use in the workshop.

All participants will receive a practice video
following the workshop with the material we cover.

Singers will have the opportunity to work with salidas while dancers try different ways to start the llamada. Players will work on the accompaniment for a basic llamada as well as specific accompaniment for the llamada we use in the workshop. We’ll talk about how to create a llamada with musical interest and how to give clear accents for the player. We’ll also look at how to anticipate the ending of the cante salida to begin the llamada, how to give a clear cue that you’re starting the llamada and what to do if you miss it.
