I AM ENJOYING IT!
These practices showed me that I need to keep my feet together, work on my heels and improve my posture. If I am going to do it, I need to commit to footwork... I have a long way to go, but I am enjoying it!
I'M REALLY LOVING THESE LESSONS!
I'm really loving these lessons. I needed to practice footwork after being gone from flamenco for a while. So grateful to be back! ♥
It's a brilliant course for me. I never thought I would have the opportunity to study flamenco- no classes nearby, no need to travel, learn at my own pace with an excellent teacher.
Flamenco Footwork Drills... what's inside
¡Toma! You will learn a few fundamentals first, then the 4 Count, 12 Count, and 5 Count Drills. Each lesson is easy to follow and complete because they're only between 5 and 10 minutes long.
Module 1: Basic Techniques
Practice the basics with individual techniques: rolling golpe, picado, back planta, golpe run, planta roll, subida, chaflán and látigo
Module 2: 4 Count Drills
We'll go over four different drills in the 4-count rhythm (Tangos, Tientos, Tarantos). We start off super slow and slowly bring up the tempo and switch up techniques: warm up, rolling golpe drills, picado drills, subida drills.
Module 3: 12 Count Drills
We cover four different drills in the 12-count rhythm (Guajiras, Solea por Bulerías, Alegrias, etc). Again, we start off slow and then bring up the tempo while we switch up the techniques: warm up, rolling golpe drills, talón & látigo drills, subida rolls drills.
Module 4: 5 Count Drills
Here, we dive into the 5 count rhythm (Seguirillas, Martinete). We start off with golpe drills and go on to planta rolls drills.
About your maestra,
Rina is a Madrid-trained professional flamenco dancer with over 20 years of experience. She also has had her own dance academy in Los Angeles, California for over 15 years. There she trains many dancers from beginners looking for a fun community and workout all the way to training dancers to perform on their own in tablaos (flamenco venues.) She also has the Online Flamenco Studio, a thriving site with over 40 courses for dancers of all levels.
Rina has a special gift with breaking down the mysteries of flamenco into easy to understand elements. So, she thoroughly enjoys watching the progress her dancers have made whether it's finally "hearing the 12" for a beginner to a tablao dancer using one of her choreographies for her show.
It’s her hope that you, too, can flourish in your flamenco journey with the Footwork Drills Course and unleash your own flamenco beast!!

THOROUGH, YET CONCISE
Rina is a generous and enthusiastic teacher. Her love of flamenco is infectious. She explains things thoroughly, yet concisely. She demonstrates movements - not only steps, but body position and arms and hands. After showing what she is going to teach, she breaks it down, then builds it back together, then practices with us! Thank you, Rina, for sharing your gift with us.
WARM & ENCOURAGING
Rina's teaching is warm, encouraging and thorough, and you really feel that you are in a live class as you dance with her. For all of us who live in a "flamenco desert" this is a fantastic resource to find.
PATIENCE & SENSE OF HUMOR
Flamenco is a challenging dance form. Rina has a clear and unique way of breaking it down. She teaches the forms and movements clearly and slowly and also the structure of the dance. She has grace and power, expertise and patience and sense of humor. The Online Flamenco Studio is really a University of Compás! Ole!
