Anjelica Scannura will be teaching a basic Introduction to Flamenco. You will learn lively footwork, swirling arm and hand movements, and the dynamic hand-clapping you would typically associate with a Flamenco fiesta! A short and very fun choreography will be taught to the accompaniment of Flamenco guitarist Roger Scannura. This is perfect for anyone that wants to try something new and have a great time! You can see Ritmo Flamenco perform at In the Park.
