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.

Marija Temo’s Flamenco Communication Workshop

A specialized Interactive Workshop, created by Temo, (for Dancers, Guitarists, and Singers) on what is required from each of them to effectively communicate (interact, accompany, compliment, and improvise) with one another through a breakdown on the structure of flamenco dance and song forms. Sought after for her unique ability to teach all three of the flamenco genres (dance, guitar, and singing), Temo explains (through the use of graphic charts that she has devised) the underlying structure of complete flamenco dance and song forms, demonstrates important moments that need to be conveyed, and has participants try out the process.  Her workshops were offered for 10 years consecutively at the University of New Mexico International Flamenco Festival, at the Toronto International Flamenco Festival, and reviewed in magazines such as Flamenco USA, Flamenco International (London, England), and Dance Magazine. Temo has traveled to many cities in the US offering her Communication Workshop helping flamenco communities develop their communication skills in how to work with guitarists, singers, and dancers.
