Fun, feisty and, above all, passionate! Flamenco is known for its graceful arm gestures, percussive footwork, intricate body movement, and intense emotion. What happens when we mix this highly-expressive dance form with bellydance? In this workshop we will combine the strength and fire of flamenco with the grace and power of belly dance.
Wednesday July 10
18.30 – 20.00 | €19 | Beginner Level
During the beginner workshop, we will first have a closer look at the eyecatching Flamenco arm and hand movements. After that we will work on expression and dynamics: how can we translate our emotions into dance movement, and how does emotion work in bellydance and in flamenco. We will end with a feisty combo at the end of the workshop combining everything we learned.
*Intermediate/ advanced Workshop*
Wednesday July 10
20.00 – 22.00| €29 | Intermediate / Advanced Level
We will first delve deep into flamenco movement vocabulary. You will pick up some of the essential foot work, hand movements, posture, strength and body control required in Flamenco. Then it’s time to play around as we will layer this flamenco vocabulary on top of our beloved bellydance movements. This workshop ends with an expressive belly flamenco choreography.

Of Spanish origin, it is quite naturally by Flamenco that Carol begins her dancer’s career. It is through Flamenco and her teacher Paulina Perez that Carol discovers oriental dance and since then she has been constantly investing in this art. Currently, Carol continues to train with Maëlle in technical Suahila Salimpour and is certified Level 2 Suahila Salimpour and Jamila Salimpour. She also followed several trainings in flamenco with teachers like Emilio Salazar, Antonio Martinez and Marisol Valderama. In love with those two dances she decides to embark on the fusion in order to combine her two passions.
