Day 3 Footwork
Welcome to Day 3 where we tackle some excellent footwork patterns in Tangos and Tientos.
**New Beginners should follow the video as much as you can!
**More experienced dancers can follow the video and then to practice on your own without me.
** Advanced dancers can try playing palmas along with the footwork.
Music used: Tangos con guitarra @144 bpm (Solo Compás), Tientos escobilla lenta con guitarra @120 bpm (Escuela de Flamenco)
Try this for bonus: Tangos con guitarra @160 (Solo Compás), Tientos escobilla media con guitarra @160bpm (Escuela de Flamenco)
TIPS: Keep abs and butt engaged, knees relaxed. Focus on articulating the sound!! Oh and smile ;)
Please note: I'm using "solo compás" music because footwork doesn't fit in with musical recordings of letras. Plus the Tientos solo compás is specific for escobillas or footwork.
PRACTICE. Follow along with me or go on your own!
RECORD. Video a short snippet of your practice with solo compás.
TRACK. Download the tracker sheet here and use to make consistent progress.
POST. Upload the video to the Online Flamenco Studio FREE Community Group. You'll inspire others to practice and get tons of "jaleos" from the others!!! If you're not ready to record a video, then at least come visit and share your progress!!
Remember, one lucky dancer will win a FREE 3 month subscription to the Online Flamenco Studio. OLE!
