Sevillanas Courses

Flamenco Studio Sevillanas and Castanets for Sevillanas Courses 2021

Monday Nights 11 October to 22 November

Sevillanas.....considered the best-known folkloric dance of Spain, it 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.

 

This video truly shows the colour and fun of the Feria de Abril in Seville where Sevillanas are danced 24/7 for a week!              

                       

Course info                        

The two courses will be combined, with the castanet course starting 30 minutes prior.  

Please note, course numbers will be capped, so don't leave your enrollment to the last minute!

Castanets for Sevillanas

The castanets course will incorporate 7 x 2hr classes, incorporating a 30min technique and patterns drill. The course is suitable for students who have a good knowledge of the Sevillanas steps, as you will be combining the two together, so the better you know it, the easier it is to add them! No castanet experience is necessary, but you will need your own castanets.

What to wear?  You can wear your flamenco shoes, but they are not necessary. Any closed toe shoes that allow you to swivel are fine. We will use a skirt for a very small part, but it isn't necessary. Male students should wear a comfortable shoe or boot that allow you to swivel also, with comfortable pants and t-shirt or shirt.
