Intro to Castanets

Tuesdays 6:15-7:15pm (Oct. 17-Nov. 21).  This is a continuing Introductory castanet class for students who already have at least six months of previous flamenco dance study and are already familiar with the rudiments of castanet playing.  This group has already completed six weeks of previous Intro to Castanet classes.

You must also concurrently be enrolled in our Basic 2, Basic 3, or Pre-Intermediate Technique class, in order to participate in the Intro to Castanets class.

In this session, students will continue to improve on their castanet-playing ability and begin to focus on playing the complete carretilla, or roll using all four fingers of the right hand.

The class will also begin to learn a choreography for the folkloric flamenco dance fandangos de Huelva which includes castanet playing while dancing.

This is the last time we will be offering a castanet class until Spring 2018, at the earliest, so, if you’re interested in joining this class, but are new to our studio, please contact us.

Student-level castanets ($45) can be purchased online here and here’s an additional source.

Tuition is $108 for the 6-week, 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.
