Flamenco 3-day retreat
Flamenco dancers, guitarists, and singers come together for three days at Lake Rabun, GA, to learn from Maestro Juan Paredes.  Classes of bulerías por fiesta focus on palmas and compás; dance elements of llamadas and marcaje and the ever important role of waiting.  Singing and guitar students benefit from learning the structure of bulerías por fiesta and live experience with dancers during fiestas, which will be subtly coached.  

More information:

Tuition  covers daily classes, nightly fiestas, charla (informal lecture), accommodations, all meals

$250 early registration before June 21
$280 late registration after June 21

Weekend details -

Daily classes -- palmas, llamadas, marcaje; each participant dances solo.  Flamenco shoes are NOT permitted.  No guitar or singing instruction is provided, but guitarists and singers are strongly encouraged to attend.

Nightly fiestas -- casual, spontaneous, subtle coaching during the fiesta as students use what is taught in class and draw from personal repertoire.  This is a great time and place for guitar and singing students to work on accompanying in the fiesta, as it is different from staged flamenco and solo performances.

Accommodations provided in private lake houses at Glen-Ella Springs on Lake Rabun, GA.  Roommate preferences may be submitted beginning June 10.  

Optional outdoor activities are available, including boating and swimming.

Spaces limited to 11 participants
