"Quickstart" Introduction to Flamenco Dance with Diana Dinicola

Flamenco dancing always looks beautiful, and not just because Spanish women are hot and whenever I see it, I'm close to saturated in sangria. This class by Flamenco Louisville
will cover the fundamental elements, including its history, arms and upper body movement, footwork and rhythmic underpinnings. To register, call (502) 235-3998.
