Flamenco workshop with Claudia Caolín
Flamenco is Passion, Flamenco is Life, Flamenco is ‘Triumphing in Adversity’.
Having its roots in India, Flamenco has developed over many centuries whilst it
originated as an art form amongst the Roma Travellers who were to settle down in
Southern Andalusia in the 17th century, some of them making their way via North
Africa, incorporating rhythms and songs along the way. In the ethnic melting pot of
Andalusia and the environment of the poorer classes, Flamenco originated like a
scream for liberation, like a defiant stance against oppression, and found its first
'golden age' in the 19 th century. Since then the art form has come a long way in all
three strands: song, dance, and guitar – constantly developing while still being true to
its original message of self-affirmation. Flamenco says: 'This is who I am. Take it or
leave it!'
In these short taster workshops, which are dynamic and fun-orientated, we will
explore the expression and dance technique of Flamenco, enabling the participants to
perform a short choreography at the end of it. They will learn about a particular style
of Flamenco dance and practise the key rhythm.

Claudia Caolín has her background in Contemporary and Flamenco Dance and has
now a teaching experience of 25 years. Originally from Germany, she studied also
for many years in London (Laban Centre London), Madrid (Amor de Dios) and
Granada, where she considerably broadened her technical abilities as well as her
theoretical understanding of both art forms. (Claudia also holds an MA in Dance
Studies and wrote her thesis about Flamenco Art.) In 2005 Claudia moved to
Cornwall where she teaches and performs regularly with her group Claudia Caolín Y
Compania.
