Dance classes will be taught at multiple levels of instruction in order to meet the skill level of each student. In addition, students will enjoy uplifting performance opportunities at the Student Showcase Concert and the performance at the HP Pavilion.

Dance students should wear appropriate dance or sports attire that allows optimum movement. Bring water bottles, boots/shoes, pañuelos, rebozos, and practice skirts. Have Jalisco hats handy.

Instructors will prepare dances that will be presented in the Gala Concert on Saturday, September 7, 2013.

Intermediate Teens/Adults

Festival workshop maestros will be setting dances and will focus on step movement and choreography that are associated with the creative direction and theme for the September 7 concert: An “Homenaje” to the Romantic Songbook of Mexico.

Children

Maestros will provide a dance curriculum tailored towards our youngest workshop dancers. Class will cover zapateado and faldeo technique as well as choreography and proper styling.
