Flores, Palmas, y Zapateado: Flamenco for Modern Dancers

This presentation discusses the choreographic process as a long road with many bumps and detours but well worth the journey from inspiration to fruition. The presenter discusses situations that arise when the inspiration for movement research is a subject not studied at this school or by the people involved. The presenter also shares a brief history of Flamenco culture, movement demonstrations, and a new choreographic work performed by six women from the Department of Dance.

Please note that presentation times are approximate. If you are interested in attending sessions with multiple presentations, please be in the room at the start of the session.
