Children love flamenco, it's colourful, noisy and fun. It helps develop musicality and rhythm, co-ordination, and confidence .
Our workshops are popular and can enhance special events such as Spanish day, or cultural week.
Workshops give the children a taste of flamenco. They include a brief talk/introduction to flamenco and it's origins. A short demonstration using castanets and fans wearing traditional dress . The children will then learn palmas (rhythmic clapping), footwork, and arm and hand movements unique to flamenco. We teach a short sequence which incorporates all these elements. We adapt the material taught according to the year group. We like to make time for Q&A at the end of each workshop.
Flamenco school clubs A popular after school activity. We run these on a weekly basis giving the pupils a chance to really grasp flamenco and then perform within the school.
We are flexible and can adapt what we offer to suit your needs. To discuss your requirements please do not hesitate to get in touch. We look forward to hearing from you.
Please note that Emma is CRB checked and also has public liability insurance.
Quotes from Year 4 students at Colfe Primary London
" After Emma finished dancing we tried it ourselves. At first I thought it would be difficult but Emma made it easier for us by making the steps simple." Elena Wolfson
"Emma was wearing a long spotty dress with frills and loud shoes. We clapped our hands and stamped our feet. I really enjoyed it and went home that night and taught my Mum and Dad a few moves." Isaac Briggs
"To begin with Emma gave us some information about the dance and it's history. Then she showed us some dancing. It was very graceful and quick and she kept waving her special dress." Luke Harris
