A Palo Seco: Flamenco Workshop

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

This all-ages workshop teaches family members of all ages some of the basic techniques and skills of Flamenco music and dance, general body and rhythmic awareness, and the cultural and historic context of this Spanish art. Beginning with a full-body warm-up set to lively Flamenco music, the workshop introduces participants to the basic techniques within Flamenco dance: zapateo (footwork), braceo (armwork), palmas (rhythmic hand-clapping), and more. They also get to see castanets in-action and learn how to play them. The workshop culminates with a short dance combination that families can go home and perform together, ending with an energetic “Ole!”

    The mission of Flushing Council on Culture and the Arts (FCCA) is to present multi-disciplinary global arts that engage and educate the global communities of Queens and New York City in order to foster mutual appreciation.  As advocates of arts equity since 1979, they support local, immigrant, national, and international artists, developing partnerships and collaborations that enhance our efforts.
