What is Espacio de Arte?
Espacio de Arte promotes community access to the Spanish flamenco cultural traditions of dance, music and singing.
Espacio de Arte is a non-proﬁt organization dedicated to sharing our passion for ﬂamenco with the people of the greater Seattle area. For several decades, the popularity of flamenco has transcended the borders of its Andalucian birthplace and become a truly global art form. We intend to promote a deeper understanding and broader interest in this unique art form by creating opportunities for flamenco artists to collaborate, producing events and performances, and providing access to study with the finest local, national and international flamenco artists. Espacio de Arte was incorporated in June 2015.
BATA DE COLA WORKSHOP
In this intensive 4 week bata de cola technique workshop students will learn and practice the basic techniques of how to use and dance with the bata de cola (long skirt with tail), doing various simple exercises to get a sense of this beautiful flamenco tool. We will warm up with footwork, body control while building the muscles we need when dancing with the bata. Exercises will be done to the palo of Alegrias. Please wear tights or leggings for the warm up exercises. Basic knowledge of Alegrias is recommended. Space is limited.
