Amira Brock
TAPAC class

These structured classes for beginners cover the foundations of different aspects of Flamenco dance, including footwork, arm and torso movements and traditional, authentic Flamenco dance steps...

You will learn to incorporate these into a short routine at the end of each class. You'll also learn palmas (flamenco clapping) to learn Flamenco rhythms, which is very important.

These classes offer a warm and supportive environment, as flamenco dance is reasonably challenging to learn and also brings great satisfaction and joy.

Please note there is NO class on Labour Day (23 October)
