Flamenco Workshop Sydney - Tablao Masterclass
Tablao Masterclass

with Pepa Molina & Ana Romero (SPAIN) , for Flamenco dancers & musicians!!!

In this unique Tablao Masterclass, Pepa Molina invites world-renowned Flamenco Artist Ana Romero (Direct from Spain) to share the important codes of communication that exist between Flamenco dancers and musicians in the Tablao Setting in a live “Tablao Lab”.

Pepa & Ana have an invaluable wealth of knowledge in the “Art” of “Tablao” with careers spanning over 4 decades in the industry (That’s 8 decades combined) and with an insight second to none into the Tablao form. We will delve into Tablao codes, structures, palmas accompaniment & Jaleos. There will be a focus on the important role “palmas” (Clapping) play in accompanying a dancer, by working on the techniques involved in palmas accompaniment for Flamenco dance, shedding light on how the “palmas” enrich & elevate a dancer’s dance to other heights.

This workshop will be structured into 4 parts:

  1. Material: Ana Romero will teach dance materials (steps) (45 mins)
  2. Palmas (Clapping): Techniques, patterns, rhythms used for accompanying dance, examples & drills.
  3. Theory: Focus on Palmas accompaniment for dance, how & why…
  4. Tablao LAB: Hands on Tablao “in situ” in groups with live guitar, singing & palmas. Pre – requisite: Flamenco dancers participating in this part of the workshop will be required to dance part of an “Alegria” (own repertoire or previously learnt repertoire) We encourage Flamenco dancers to participate dancing in Part 4, but understand some dancers may want to observe, this is also an option.
