Berkeley - Jose Maya Dance Workshops - FESTIVAL FLAMENCO GITANO 2011
Bay Area Flamenco presents a special "Bulerias por Fiesta" dance workshop as part of Festival Flamenco Gitano.

A non-intimidating setting for students to learn and practice the basics of bulerias including marking steps, remates, and llamdas used in "fiesta-style" dancing. Jose Maya will sing for the class as he teaches so that students can see how the dancing fits with the music. This class will be fun and engaging!

Register now to reserve your space in class.

Jose Maya will teach Bulerias por Fiesta in two, 2-hour sessions.

BIOGRAPHY
JOSE MAYA, AKA "Joselito Romero," one of the most explosive dancers in Spain today, is a powerful figure in flamenco's new generation. He comes from a family of Gypsy intellectuals in Madrid: artists, actors and writers, including painter Antonio Maya and dancer Fernanda Romero. He has collaborated with many of the most well-known flamenco artists including Farruquito, El Güito,
Manolete, Estrella Morente, Gerardo Núñez and Diego El Cigala, and has opened for pop stars Marc Anthony, Beyoncé and Björk. He was featured as the main dancer in Gypsy filmmaker Tony Gatlif's recent performance project "Vertigo" which toured throughout Europe.

As a member of Grammy-winning guitarist Tomatito's sextet he thrilled US audiences in an East Coast tour in 2008. Maya now returns to the US with his own company, hot off a busy year of performances including the prestigious 2010 Bienal del Arte Flamenco de Sevilla, International Flamenco Festivals in Brazil and Albuquerque New Mexico and the 2011 Flamenco Festival de Jerez.
