Level Description

Intermediate I (new level!)

  • Aimed at students who have studied flamenco for at least a year or two, know basic palos, understand 12 beat compás,

  • Focus is on building strength in the footwork and upper body, understanding and practicing the connection with the music. 

Intermediate II:

  • For those who have studied flamenco for at least three or four years or at least one year with Mr. Aparicio. 

  • Faster pace, learning more advanced footwork and choreography.

Intermediate Technique:

  • Aimed at both Intermediate I and Intermediate II levels. 

  • Strong focus on building footwork strength and footwork/upper body coordination.  Focus on footwork and upper body routines rather than on choreography.

Advanced:

  • This level is for students with 6+ years of flamenco experience, who have very strong footwork and great control of the upper body.  It's common to have professionals join this class from time to time to help them maintain their form and exercise their brains a bit.
