Event description

Description

With its theatrical stage presence, Flamenco has become well known for its fiery dancers that stomp out complicated rhythms in heeled shoes. Although much of Flamenco's dance is percussive, there is another side to Spain's Heritage dance form-- the intimate world of the Spanish Gypsies. Their way of dancing is natural, expressive, and spontaneous. Sharing simple, accessible arm movements and light dance steps to uplifting music, this barefoot flamenco class will inspire lots self-expression. Ages 16 and up.

When: Saturday, March 16th from 10:30-12:00pm.

Where: JUMP Move Studio on the fifth floor, take a right out of the elevators.

Cost: $15

From her beginnings at Solo Flamenco (Portland,OR) in 2003 studying with Laurena Marrone, to her travels in search of connections with Flamenco communities in Seattle, Santa Cruz, and San Francisco, and finally her studies and acceptance into the elite Gypsy Flamenco communities of Southern Spain, Estefanía has established herself in the Western United States, and Europe as a talented singer, an impassioned dancer, a patient mentor and en inspiring member of every musical community she is involved in.

In 2009 she studied in Seville Spain,with Angelita Vargas and Juan del Gastor. Then in the late summer of 2009, Estefanía decided to plunge deep into the Gypsy culture of Andalusia,
taking on La Chiqui de Jerez (cantaora) as her coach not only of voice but of Spanish language and culture. This is what Estefanía calls her 'point of no return', studying with La Chiqui exclusively and intensely for 3 straight years before slipping on her dance shoes again to apply to the dance, what she had learned from the cante (song of Flamenco). She continues to study dance, cante (singing), and rhythm. Returning to Spain frequently to study exclusively with world renown dancers such as Maria del Mar
Moreno, Maria Bermudez, and Antonio El Pipa, Estefanía has built a strong foundation of technique and knowledge to share with students of dance at Escuela de Ritmo, Boise.

A native of Boise, Idaho, Estefanía is the lead singer and principal dancer for her Flamenco Rumba group Shimi Tree. Although she enjoys sharing her talent on stages in the US and Europe, Estefanía also enjoys directing flamenco artists of Spain at events such as the Obwalden Cultural Festival, (Switzerland, 2013, 2015).
