Intro to Castanets (6-week, 6-class session)

Saturdays 12noon-1pm (Jan. 14-Feb. 18).  Introductory castanet class for students who already have at least a few months of previous flamenco dance study.  You must also concurrently be enrolled in one of our Basic 3 level classes, and it's ideal if you have at least a rudimentary knowledge of the castanet sounds (pi, ta, chin, pum).  We will be working on the ria-ta combination in this 6-week session, leading to being able to produce the carretilla, or hand roll that results in the ability to play all of the sounds in the castanet repertoire.  You must provide your own castanets.  

You'll learn a very simple choreography dancing while accompanying yourself with castanets.  This class is offered only once or twice a year, so if you're intrigued, please do enroll this time! 

Student-level castanets ($45) can be purchased online here.

Tuition is $108 for the 6-class session, and missed classes may be made up in any other class on the schedule.  Makeups must be taken before the end of the 6-week session.  Tuition is non-refundable and non-transferable to another session, so please be sure that your schedule allows you to attend.
