About the Event

Artkhoj brings you an Online Flamenco Dancing workshop for total beginner's which can be attended from your home.

No prior experience is required.


What is Flamenco Dancing:

Flamenco dance (baile) is a highly-expressive, Spanish dance form. The flamenco is a solo dance characterized by hand clapping, percussive footwork, and intricate hand, arm, and body movements. The dance is usually accompanied by a singer and guitar player.


With roots in Indian, Arabic, and Spanish culture, flamenco dance is known for its sweeping arm movements and rhythmic feet stomping.


About the workshop:

The workshop is open to ANYONE, with or without any dance/ movement experience!

If you’d like to gather some insight about “Flamenco”, join in! 

We will begin with A little introduction to the history of the form and its connection with India.


We will learn & focus on

upper body movements - of arms and palms, torso and hips, with simple footwork patterns 

Using primarily Alegrias compas, and a bit of introduction to Tangos Compás 


What to wear:

  • Comfortable clothing.
  • No shoes or comfortable dance sneakers are ok. (Not required to wear Flamenco Shoes).
  • An open area where you can practice easily with the instructor.
  • Stand on any type of flooring
