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

Tuesdays 6:15-7:15pm (Sept. 5-Oct. 10).  Introductory castanet class for students who already have at least six months of previous flamenco dance study.  

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

This is a from-scratch intro class on the rudiments of castanet playing, in which you will learn the basic sounds of the castanet and will be expected to practicing basic castanet exercises at home.

Students will also begin to learn a simple introductory choreography using castanets.

You must provide your own 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-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.
