MOTHERS' DAY * SUNDAY MAY 14 : Workshop in Jerez style! at1:30 pm with Luis de la Tota
Enjoy the opportunity to study close up with Luis, who is living, breathing, growing up in family, clan and culture with the art we so much love! He will give us great insights into the soniquete, the details, the know-how to use palmas, rhythms, jaleos and some letras , dance- moves to make you become part of the family that loves to share times of Juergas, the good times together when authentic moments arise and Flamenco is like church, and a really good party! Luis is a master festero, fun, loving, very sharing and truly interested in giving you something you can use right away in our fiesta that afternoon....." In Southern Spain, spontaneous dance erupts with Jaleo first than the singing will follow -but often the group will stay with Jaleo, Palmas and Dance."
Luis states that "Jaleo erupts like a volcano from your soul. It cannot be stopped! "
Cost for 90 min. wkshp: $ 35. Juerga free for participants of wkshp.
Fiesta - Juerga - Mother’s Day Celebration! at 3 pm
And then stay for our Juerga, eat, drink, be happy and soon we shall begin our Juerga with spontaneous singing, guitar, dancing, jaleos and merry enjoyment. This is an aspect of Flamenco that is most fun with people who share with us what they grew up in. Spaniards are masters at fiestas!
