Flamenco is resilience in motion. An art form that grew from the diverse cultures and influences in Southern Spain, flamenco lyrics describe perseverance amidst hardship and the dance embodies strength. In this workshop, students will receive an overview of the history of flamenco, and then explore how flamenco movements, rhythms, and gestures help heal trauma and embody resilience. Blumenfeld will also speak about her experiences teaching flamenco to incarcerated women and flamenco’s unique way of empowering individuals and developing community.
