The Flamenco Studio was established in 2000 by Simone Pope as a centre for flamenco dance tuition and performance in Brisbane. Since it’s establishment it has become Brisbane’s best known flamenco dance centre, offering regular general classes, private tuition, student performance groups, workshops, and its yearly student concerts with ¡¡Toma Flamenco!!


Classes are available for beginners to advanced students, encompassing technique for upper body and feet, and specific choreographies.

As Flamenco is not only a dance artform, Simone’s aim is to teach students all of the elements of flamenco – not only steps, but also the important role of the music (guitar, singing and compás) as well as the history and culture of flamenco.

Clarisa di Salvo 2017 Australian Workshop Tour

Brisbane Flamenco Dance, Theory, and Palmas/Compás Workshops

The Flamenco Studio is proud to present another great series of intensive workshops with

Clarisa di Salvo. Clarisa is an inspiration to watch both on stage and in class! Her teaching is warm,

nurturing and generous.

 

These workshops will help students to develop their style, technique and interpretation of Flamenco dance,

palmas and compás. Accompanied by Clarisa's husband Jose Ismael Sierra with both guitar and song,

this is an ideal opportunity to add to your understanding and knowledge of the three corners of flamenco

- song, guitar and dance.

In her performance Clarisa brings art and emotion to her dance. Her style is unique and gorgeous - strong, feminine,

and highly expressive with emphasis on bodywork, beautiful hands, explosive finishes,

deep turns and precise feet. She has spent most of the last ten years studying and working in Seville,

especially with many of the gypsy Flamencos in Seville and this certainly shows in her domination of the dance.

I strongly encourage all flamenco dancers including Experienced Beginners to come!

Sevillanas .....considered the best know folkloric dance of Spain, the Sevillanas is made up of four short dances to set music. It is one of the few Spanish dances that have a set length and choreography, which means you can dance it with anyone, anywhere! Sevillanas has been embraced by Flamenco and have had a revival since the 1960's. It is especially celebrated at the various Ferias around Andalucia following Semana Santa, the most famous being the Feria de Sevilla. Many Sevillanos can sing a Sevillana, (there must be thousands of different ones!) and each year around Feria time as you wander through the shops, especially in Sevilla, you'll hear the latest Sevillana releases (the chart toppers for that year). They range from over the top but fun (synthesizer, orchestras, castanets) to stunning flamenco solo guitar interpretations. Away from Feria it's danced anywhere there's a party, you don't even need music!

Sevillanas is danced within flamenco under many interpretations - as a couple, in groups, with mantons, with fans, with or without castanets, fast, slow, and in various musical styles - it's been interpreted in pretty much every way! But it always returns to the same form and is nearly always danceable.  

In the workshops we'll learn the traditional steps of the Sevillanas and how they go together with the music, and we'll dance to various musical styles - mostly traditional but some less traditional styles.

The workshops will incorporate 5 x 2 hr sessions over 2 weekends .   Most suitable for students with at least 6 months flamenco dance  experience.   However if you have less experience and you're keen to  try, please contact me!

More recently Rosalie has been performing Flamenco in renowned Madrid tablaos such as Torres Bermejas, Café de Chinitas, El Juglar, Al Andalus, El Barco

and the famous Las Carboneras, one of the best known tablaos in Madrid.

About Naike Ponce Gonzalez....

Naike was born in Sanlúcar de Barrameda, Cádiz in 1984. It's there, in her hometown, cradle of artists, where she got closer to the Flamenco. After receiving several prizes as a beginner, she was awarded a grant to study in the Cristina Heeren´s Flamenco Academy in Seville, where she took classes with masters such as José de la Tomasa, Manuel Soler and Paco Taranto. In 2002, she began her professional life and embarked on a tour in Belgium with a group of young artists.

From 2005 to 2007, she performed in the UK in various shows and 2011 she sang in “Cómplices, in which she was nominated as newcomer actress in 2011 by the Premios de Teatro.  Currently, she combines performance and teaching, giving regular classes of flamenco singing.

We are very lucky to have Naike here from Spain to collaborate with Rosalie and to offer a Flamenco Singing Workshop. Naike will sing for some of the dance workshops so that students will be able to also work on understanding and interpreting the cante (singing) in their choreography.

Flamenco Studio Sevillanas Workshops 2011!!

 

http://flamenco-world.com/magazine/about/sevillana/sevillana.jpgSevillanas – considered the best know folkloric dance of Spain. The Sevillanas is made up of four short dances to set music. It is one of the few Spanish dances that have a set length and choreography, which means you can dance it with anyone, anywhere! Sevillanas is danced within Flamenco and has had a revival since the 1960’s. It is especially celebrated at the various Ferias around Andalucia following Semana Santa, the most famous being the Feria de Sevilla. Many Sevillanos can sing a Sevillana, (there must be thousands of different ones!) and each year around Feria as you wander through the shops, especially in Sevilla, you’ll hear the latest Sevillana releases (the chart toppers for that year). They range from over the top but fun (synthesizer, orchestras, castanets) to stunning flamenco solo guitar interpretations. Away from Feria it’s danced anywhere there’s a party, you don’t even need music.

 

Sevillanas is danced within flamenco under many interpretations – as a couple, in groups, with mantons, with fans, with or without castanets, fast, slow, and in various musical styles – it’s been interpreted in pretty much every way!

 

In the workshops we’ll learn the 4 Sevillanas, with a focus on understanding how each of them fit to the music. We’ll dance to various musical styles of Sevillanas – from traditional to more contemporary styles.

 

The workshops will incorporate 5 x 2 hr sessions over 2 weekends. Most suitable for students with at least 6 months flamenco dance experience. However if you have less experience and you’re keen to try, please contact me.

Flamenco Dance Workshops with Sebastian Sanchez 2011!!

http://simonepope.com/Images/seb.jpg

About Sebastian Sanchez.... Sebastian commenced dancing flamenco in 2000 after watching his first teacher Simone Pope perform at a local festival in Brisbane, and was instantly mesmerised. After several years training with Simone attending regular classes at the Flamenco Studio, workshops by visiting international artists, and travelling briefly to Spain to further his knowledge, Sebastian soon became a teacher in the academy where he first began. He also became a performer for a number of dance companies. As a member of Australian dance Companies, ‘Jaleos Flamenco, ‘Flamenco Fire' (where he performed at Brisbane's prestigious concert venue QPAC in their production of “Primavera Mia”) and co producer of the company ‘Dale Caña', Sebastian has performed in various concerts and festivals including the Woodford Folk Festival, The Valley Fiesta, and the Queensland Multicultural Festival .

With a view to progressing his artistic career on a full time basis, and influenced by his Spanish migrant parents, Sebastian travelled to Andalucia where he has trained intensively for approximately 3 years in Jerez and Seville. In doing so, he has continued to progress with international artists such as Rafael Campallo, Manuel Betanzos, Andrés Peña, Pili Ogalla, Juan de los Reyes, and Alejandro Granados to name a few. Consequently Sebastian taught various levels as guest teacher at Casa de Flamenco Academy in Adelaide and the Flamenco Studio in Brisbane and has also taught regular classes, workshops and provided private tuition throughout Europe, including Spain and Russia . Sebastian has also performed several time as an invited artist in Russia at the Moscow Jazz Club and the esteemed Moscow International Performing Arts Centre.

Flamenco Dance Workshops with Pepa Molina from Madrid!!

Presented by The Flamenco Studio

      

This will be Pepa's second visit to Brisbane– the last time in 2007, so I'm very pleased that we actually get to coincide with her this year!!! I recently spent a week with Pepa in Madrid at Amor de Dios were she is now one of the maestros. There she not only runs her own classes, but also teaches the Ciclo Dedicado a la Formacion Completa del Baile Flamenco in association with other great maestras including La Truco, Maria Juncal and Carmela Greco.

 

About Pepa ….Pepa Molina originally trained with Antonio Vargas and after continuing her studies in Spain, she went on to perform in some of the most renowned National and International music and dance festivals and flamenco tablaos,  including El Café de Chinitas , Corral de la Morería , Corral de la Pacheca , La Villa Rosa , Casa Patas , Las Tablas and Las Carboneras . From there Pepa has been in national and international tours as a soloist in Amargo , Poeta en Nueva York , and Troya siglo XXI with Rafael Amargo and with Paco Peña and the Losadas.

 

In 2004, she formed her own dance company “Compañía Pepa Molina” and has also performed in companies such as Manolete's dance companies, with Eva “La Yierbabuena” and Manolo Marín as guest choreographers. In Spain, Pepa has taught at Casa Patas Conservatorium, The Antonio Canales School of Dance and the prestigious Amor de Dios. She recently performed in “Flamencos XXIst Century” with Rafaela Carrasco, Manuel Liñan and Marco Flores.

 

Pepa continues to hone her skills both as a teacher and performer. Her workshops are excellent – she has great energy as a teacher, is extremely attentive and motivating, and is able to impart the whole package – feet and body, compás and intention of a movement - through her more than 15 years of teaching experience. On top of that she has a phenomenal knowledge and understanding of the flamenco artform.
