Flamenco classes for kids
The Spanish dance form flamenco, with its colourful costumes and rhythmic sounds, will come alive for children this fall thanks to Lina Moros, who will offer co-ed children’s classes at Studio Mon Tango, 5588 A Sherbrooke St. W., in N.D.G.
Moros, a pioneer in flamenco, says children eagerly embrace this dance form with its emphasis on handclapping and foot stomping. They also learn how to communicate nonverbally with a partner and to carry themselves with confidence.
Sessions begin Tuesday, October 4 and will last for 10 weeks. Classes for children ages 4-6 (with a parent) will take place from 4 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. and cost $150. Classes for children ages 7-12 run from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. and cost $100. Children are asked to wear comfortable pants, T-shirts, and shoes with a small heel (dress or party shoes). They should bring a small, portable, percussive instrument (tambourine, maracas, or something as simple as a plastic water bottle with grains of rice or beans).
