Serendipity Workshop


Many of the steps in our FatChance style belly dance take inspiration from flamenco. Join Mercedes for some real Flamenco and see and feel the influences from posture to attitude and styling.

What to expect from her class:

Mercedes lessons are dynamic and engaging with full body strength. She uses a mix of traditional and modern Flamenco to provide her students with the roots, style, technique and adds a new dimension to this passionate and vibrant dance.

She will be teaching Alegrias. A medium 12 bit tempo and one of the most popular and exciting form or palos of flamenco. There will be emphasis on the articulation of hands movement and foot work combining asyncopated and on the beat rhythms and some other body percussion.

Please bring any shoes or boots with sturdy chunky or block heels
