Event Description

Battersea Spanish and its Flamenco Programme is proud to collaborate on a series of special flamenco workshops led in our studio by world-renown artist Maria Vega. One Sunday a month flamenco students of all levels can treat themselves to a one of a kind learning experience.

About the Open Flamenco Workshop – The intensive workshops series-

“The aim of this project is to give both face to face and free online quality content about Flamenco and Spanish dance for all levels of expertise. I truly believe in sharing knowledge, spreading the love for what I do and creating an open Flamenco community, both as a teacher and a performer”.

The intensive workshops will be dedicated every month to a different theme.

You will enjoy a comprehensive flamenco class, exploring technique and choreography including footwork, hips, shoulders, arms and hands movement, clapping on flamenco rhythm, choreography and a special focus on truly understanding the different flamenco styles (“palos del flamenco”).
