Spanish Golden Age Dance

This workshop presents the Spanish baroque dance style. We will learn the basic steps and some variations of Jácara (sister of the Sarabande) and La Chacona.
It is addressed to students of different levels. For those who already have some experience, the workshop is a continuation of the practice and an opportunity to get deeper into the style. Those who never tried this style are also welcome.
Students who play castanets or who would like to learn are invited to bring their own.
