Karen Flamenco is a progressive learning dance academy which emphasizes performance,stressing technique, strength, individual and artistic expression. The program has a strong foundation in traditional, clasico & modern flamenco dance forms. Dancers are taught in a comfortable and non-intimidating atmosphere with a class limit of ten dancers. With small class sizes dancers will receive one on one encouragement and constructive criticism as each dancer will have different, specific needs. Classes include flamenco guitar and vocal accompaniment. Dance classes are offered to men, women and children of any age and level. No previous dance training is required to begin.
In addition to regular classes, Karen Flamenco professional-level dance students are given the opportunity to work with local and internationally renowned guest artists and perform through participation in the Karen Flamenco Dance Company. Performances are an integral part of the program, developing a sense of community and ultimately an understanding of the flamenco art form.
The flamenco school year is divided into four terms:
Fall - Spring (Sept - June) is considered a full school year.
There is a Flamenco dance performance at the end of the Spring term where dancers are able to showcase their hard work throughout the year.
Past guest teachers and choreographers: Maria Juncal, El Farru, Soledad Bario, Maria Emma Estrada, Christina Hall, Fiona Malena
