Your lesson content for beginners

[Introduction to flamenco beginner course]
Introductory class period: 6 months to 1 and a half years.
Goal: Acquire correct posture and flamenco-specific physical manipulation by learning sevillanas and flamenco-style tango choreography.

[Course flow]
☆ The following is the general flow of learning. Each student has his or her own personality, and the order of learning is not always the same.
☆ One of the points of learning is not to be afraid of mistakes. Rather than being aware of mistakes, let's adapt to the next move.
☆ In the first process of learning choreography, you are associated with a place called a studio, the music that plays in that place, and the people in that place. So you might feel "I can't remember what I learned that day when I get home", but it's okay! That's just normal in human memory systems. Gradually, you will be able to remember outside the studio, so don't rush.


・ 1-2 months: Get used to the movements peculiar to flamenco. If you choreograph the tango with the teacher and other lesson students, you can dance while looking in the mirror.
・ 1-3 months: You can dance the first step of Sevillanas with your teacher and other lesson students while looking in the mirror.
・ 1 to 4 months: You can dance the second step of the sevillanas with the teacher and other lesson students while looking in the mirror, and you can partially add the movement of your arms and hands to the swing of the sevillanas.
・ 1 to 6 months: You can dance Sevillanas Nos. 1 and 2 with your teacher and other lesson students, even if there are some mistakes. Tango choreography can be danced with the lesson students.
・ 1-8 months: You can dance Sevillanas Nos. 1, 2 and 3 with your teacher and other lesson students, even if you have a mistake.
・ 1-10 months: You can dance the 4th step of Sevillanas with the teacher and other lesson students even if there is a mistake.
・ 1-12 months: Sevillanas 1, 2, 3, 4 and tango can be danced with other lesson students even if there is a mistake.


[Lesson content]
・ Stretching: The purpose is to prevent injuries and increase the range of movement of the body. However, one of the characteristics of flamenco dance is that a soft body like a gymnast is not essential.
We mainly stretch around the hip joint and around the scapula within a reasonable range for each member.


・ Prie: A dance term that means to bend the knee. In flamenco, the toes open around the heel. At this time, be aware of opening from the hip joint.
The Japanese have the force of internal rotation, which tends to cause the inner thigh, at the base of the leg, while the Spanish have the external rotation, in which the force works in the opposite direction. It may look like a crab crotch, but this training that is conscious of external rotation will allow you to create stable movements and beautiful poses while dancing.
The adductor muscles, which are the hip-up muscles such as the psoas major muscle and the adductor muscle, are trained with this pree. As a result of this training, you will also acquire model walking.
In addition, improvements such as stoop, O-legs, inner thighs, and warped hips. You can expect to strengthen your core.

・ Turn: In flamenco, it is called Buerta, which means to rotate.
Flamenco has very little rotation like classical ballet, but it's not entirely free of rotation. Of course, in this training, you will be able to rotate itself, but the point is to be aware of how to make the face orientation when posing and the trunk and abdominal lateral muscles (muscles that maintain posture and make the waistline beautiful).

Mano and Braso: Mano means hand and braso means arm. Mano and Braso emphasize the flamenco character. The beauty of the unique wrist-turning movement is unique to flamenco.
By learning the movements of your hands and arms, you will of course acquire the beauty of dancing. In addition, it can be expected to have the effect of tightening the upper arm and back muscles, increasing basal metabolism, and making the face smaller.

Escovilla: A flamenco tap. You can play various rhythms by hitting the floor with special shoes. You can expect to improve the sense of rhythm, strengthen the trunk, improve bone density, and relieve stress.

Choreography 1 ⃣ Tango Flamenco: Tango is famous for Argentine tango and continental tango, but there are also tango as a typical flamenco song.
In the case of flamenco, it may not be known that there are various types of music such as tango, sevillanas, soleá, and alegrías in the music genre of flamenco.
Flamenco tango is a rhythm pattern song based on 2 beats and 8 beats. A typical tune is a scale called the Spanish scale (Spanish scale), which gives an oriental atmosphere.
Studio Dansa Flamenco's tango choreography consists of movements suitable for beginners to start flamenco. After a couple of months, you'll be able to enjoy dancing with your classmates.

Choreographed song type (2) Sevillanas: Sevillanas are probably the first flamenco dances you learn in most flamenco classes.
In Spain, it is a three-beat, six-beat dance that is brilliantly enjoyed at the Spring Festival and the Andalusian cheerful pilgrimage festival Rossieras.
The atmosphere of the song is diverse, from bright to melancholy, and it is a dance that you can enjoy early in the flamenco. It is also attractive that all participants can enjoy it at light events.
* Some experts and researchers have said that "Sevillanas are not flamenco" because the characteristics of musical and dance composition do not belong to typical flamenco, but I personally cannot agree with that theory. I think there is.

[Effects you can expect from flamenco lessons]
・ In Prie, improvement of basal metabolism, correct posture, improvement of stoop and O-leg, strengthening of trunk, etc.
・ Strengthen the trunk, strengthen the transverse abdominal muscles, improve posture, etc. on the turn.
・ In Mano and Braso, strengthening the upper arm and back muscles, small face, etc.
・ Escovilla improves rhythm, strengthens the trunk, improves bone density, and relieves stress.
・ Overall, learning various techniques will lead to an increase in self-affirmation.

・ And above all, "being able to dance flamenco dance" and having a fulfilling time with friends.
