Featured Camp of the Day: Flamenco Dancing

Flamenco originated in southern Spain, but in the last few decades this intricate and beautiful dance has rapidly gained popularity all over the world. Flamenco is danced by men and women of all ages, in groups or solo; come learn the basics!  We cover footwork and upper body technique focusing on correct use of core and supporting muscles and posture an…d positioning necessary to successfully execute movements.  Repetitive, slow movements support dancers as they learn to combine steps in succession.  We learn basic palmas (rhythmic hand-clapping) and how the baile (dance) relates to the cante (singing).  We learn a short choreography tailored to the level of the students as a group.  This is the class for you if you are brand new to dance, or if you just want to add new techniques and variety to your existing dance skills and repertoire. Entering grades 2-8. Register today at www.coloradoacademysummer.org.
