From the Author

I made a journey of almost 2 years to produce this work. I am pleased to say that it has brought me closer to my love of Flamenco and taught me more than any previous teacher in understanding the delicate intricacies and nuances. I believe this book will give beginners and enthusiasts the right information at the right time before they move on to more sbstantial and complicated choreographies and technique.

5.0 out of 5 stars IDEAL book for Flamenco beginners 11 Dec 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm a complete beginner trying to learn how to dance basic Flamenco. I recently bought an instructional DVD on how to dance Flamenco, which was quite good, but what I really needed was a book to go with it, which showed in step-by-step photos exactly how to execute the various hand and foot movements. This is that book! Hand and foot positions, the different steps, and even warm ups, foot drills and practice exercises are all illustrated with detailed instructions and photographs. Lots of interesting background information too, details of accompanying rhythms, lyrics and lots more. At the end of the book is a list of websites about Flamenco, dance schools, music, and so on.

If you are beginning Flamenco - or even just curious about it - buy this book! It's superb.
