FLAMENCO DANCE FOR EVERYBODY with JAVIER HEREDIA 1-day Workshop in BERKELEY at 8th Annual Bay Area Flamenco Festival
Flamenco for Everybody - a Flamenco Dance Workshop with Javier Heredia, Direct from Sevilla, Spain.
A VERY ACCESSIBLE CLASS RECOMMENDED FOR ALL LEVELS!
Spanish Gypsy Festero Javier Heredia is a very open and fun teacher who loves to share his culture. Dreaming of taking off to Spain for more Flamenco? Take this workshop and be ready to participate in a flamenco fiesta when you get there!
This is Multi-level, meaning all levels are welcome - Brand new people as well. Advanced people will definitely be challenged!
A festero in the tradition of Miguel Funi, Anzonini and Paco Valdepeñas. Part dancer, part singer, part storyteller - all artist, integrated and inseparable - Javier performs with spontaneity and charisma, communicating with his art wherever he finds himself, whether it be on the street, in the kitchen, at a local bar or on stage. As a young man, Javier worked for a few years on the docks in Sevilla until elders of the Gypsy flamenco community discovered his "arte" and encouraged him to become a professional. He has since appeared several times in Seville's prestigious Flamenco Biennial in support of artist such as Jose Merce, Arcángel, Manuel Molina, Juana la del Pipa among others. He has toured all over Europe with the legendary dancer Manuela Carrasco and has appeared as a soloist in important flamenco events internationally such as the Mont de Marsan Flamenco Festival in the south of France.
