We've been working on Manuela Carpio's bulerías since last summer, we've added in bulerías from Farruca, Concha Vargas, La Lupi and yours truly. We'll keep studying the material to be able to really improvise with it! Yeah. My goal for you is to practice holding on to colocación and rhythm while thinking on your feet. Doesn't have to be complicated, but I'd like it to be clean! Moving into Bulerías por Solea we use some of the same material, slow it down, and square off the verses. I thought it would be interesting to study one rhythm next to the other, to see how the same movement changes from one to the other. We're also beginning to study footwork material which can be done fast and con mucho aire -- of course! I'm thinking of messing around w some cantes abandolaos: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q9iW7BJSniI maybe fandangos de Lucena and verdiales, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73ZgHfNSYoE

From now on, all my classes will be held at Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana studios. It's a great space, a great location, and I'm so grateful they were able to accomodate me. These will be hour and a half classes: I'll spend the first hour working movement material and the last half hour jamming! We'll have a real mix of levels, which is fine because, as you all know, I don't do fancy steps. Our goal will be to dance without steps! José Moreno, dancer, singer, guitarist, cajon player and all-around monstruo, comes on Saturdays.
