Ensemble Español

Percussive Movement of Spanish Dance

Saturday, May 30, 2020 at 10:00 am with Frida Medina

Cost: $20

The castanets*, palmas and heel work are three of the identifying sounds of Spanish Dance. These rhythms are exquisitely incorporated into Spanish dance choreography and are often used as the only musical component of the dance. This Dancer’s Rhythm Class will teach you some of the castanets, palmas and heel work patterns from the Ensemble Español repertoire. 


(Any level is welcome. Your own castanets are required. Recommended for 15 years old and up. A minimum of 5 dancers is required to run the class)

*(Students must have their own castanets for this portion of the class. We are happy to provide retailers with this purchase)
