This private flamenco hand clapping (compás y palmas) course allows you to learn the rhythm and metrical structure of flamenco, which is not always as obvious as it seems.
Hand clapping is an integral part of flamenco music with its own techniques, guidelines and etiquette. Clapping hands may seem like a basic thing to practice. The challenge begins when you vary the technique to create different sounds, keep a consistent sound, stay on a steady beat, stay on a steady counter beat, and then move your body, sing, or provide jaleo (encouraging shouts to performers) while doing it all.
This course is all about coordination. You will learn the basic movements as well as different techniques such as palmas sordas (mute), also called palmas bajas (low) and palmas fuertes, also called palmas claras (clear) or altas (high).
Your teacher will guide you step by step to practice a routine while improving your performance and technique. You’ll receive friendly feedback throughout so that you don’t miss anything.
“It was one of the highlights of our stay in Seville. But it wasn’t just the lesson with Lidia, who was such a lovely teacher with the patience of an angel, but also the overall experience with the school. They made our entire stay more special.” — Sammy (Chicago, USA)
This course is suitable for every one: absolute beginners, those who have taken some beginners’ flamenco lessons or those who have a lot of flamenco experience. Either way, the teacher will support you and tailor the class to your needs.
In fact, you can choose what is that you want to specifically learn. Is it flamenco dance? Flamenco technique? How to play castanets while dancing?
It’s really up to you!
