Escuela Bolera w/Josie LaRiccia

Currently offered as a private lessonPlease inquire.  Also known as Classical Spanish Ballet from the 18th & 19th centuries. This beautiful dance is imbued with the Iberian temperament making it uniquely Spanish. The steps (pasos) and combinations of steps (compuestos) are coordinated with the playing of castanets.  Lessons consist of a ballet barre warm-up, center warm-up, castanet exercises, curso exercises for technique and choreography. The preservation of the Escuela Bolera dances is due largely to several generations of the Pericet family from Madrid.
