For anyone who has always wanted to try flamenco, these classes introduce all the basics. Or, for dancers who want to brush up on technique, this is a great opportunity to work on refining your skills. Students will learn basic movement vocabulary, technique, and short dances.
Taught by Albuquerque Native, Leslie Roybal, recently returned to Burque from New York City!
Leslie has had an extensive career as a performer and dance educator in both the Contemporary Dance and Flamenco ideologies. She is currently the Program Director for Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana in New York City and produces the Flamenco Certamen USA annually which supports the growth and exposure of up-and-coming flamenco artists throughout the United States. Leslie has toured with companies such as Murray Spalding Mandalas, Fred Darsow Dance, Neville Dance Company, The Metropolitan Opera, Pasión y Arte, A Palo Seco Flamenco, Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana and performed regularly in the New York and New Jersey tablaos. She was a scholarship recipient for the NALAC Leadership Institute in 2011, was a pioneering member of the Performers in Transition Fellowship for the BAM Professional Development Program/DeVos Institute of Arts Management at the Kennedy Center in 2012, and was named one of 12 national finalists for the 2016 Coors Light Líderes Program in honor of her work as a supporter of the Latino community.
