Workshops by Phoenix of Denver and Silvia Salamanca at the beautiful Dance Garden Los Angeles.

Silvia Salamanca presents The Fire of the Spanish Gypsies: a Spanish skirt routine
Have you ever wondered how the Gitanas (Spanish gypsies) leave everyone speechless when they dance with their skirts? Now you have the chance to find out! In this workshop we will break down the skirt work that, united with sensuous arm movements, posture and expression will build a brand new routine designed to catch the room on fire! 

All Levels Welcome
Bring a skirt and your best ole!

Join Phoenix of Denver for a fun filled workshop combining rhythms, patterns, movement and traveling with zills. 
For less experienced zill players, Phoenix’s style introduces various approaches to understanding the music and gain confidence playing zills.
For the more experienced zill player, Phoenix offers challenging tasks to expand their skills and explore creative variations along with overlaying rhythms.
Get ready for additional ideas on expanding your improvisation and choreography by varying your zill rhythms and patterns.

Some zill experienced is suggested.
Bring your zills and gain new skills!

The classes will be a STEAL for $50 each at the door, but
