Description of classes for current session:

Tues 7:30 Adv Cuadro:  Building upon the skills that students have learned in structuring baile for cante, playing palmas for each other, coaching with regard to body control, footwork, armwork and understanding compás.  Students in this class are offered additional performance opportunities with Yaelisa.

Tues 8:30 Adv Caña:  A palo in the structure of Solea Por Bulerias characterized by more melodic cante, a rhythm in 12 that has a Gregorian chant section.  

Wed Classes:  These workshops focus on more beginner levels to build foundation and for new students.  Structured now in 4 week sessions, Yaelisa expects a 4 week commitment in order to hold sessions.

Sat. 12-1pm Beg Flamenco: For new or more experienced Beginners to build foundation in rhythm, footwork and upper body dynamics. A good intro class for the Bulerias class that follows at 1pm.

Sat. 2pm Int/Adv. Flamenco:  An all-around technique class which incorporates dynamics of moving across the floor with footwork patterns, to develop strength and FOOTWORK DRILLS.

Sat. 3-4:30pm Adv Repertory:  This class is open to ALL students new to Yaelisa, and is an advanced repertory class focusing on developing the individual dancer. Yaelisa focuses heavily on the strengths of each dancer, and dancers in this class accompany each other as well as are given coaching and HOMEWORK on creating their own patterns/remates to share with the other dancers.  Six months into this class and dancers are already noticing their abilities improving and confidence building.


Starting Again in May!



Llevo 6 años cantando para Yaelisa, y lo que me fascina de esa mujer es que tiene muchisimo recurso bailando, super flamenca, señora y te  puede sacar unas quantidades de " ole.”  Tambien de vez en cuando tengo el honor de cantar en su clase, y es muy buena profesora, super atenta a sus alumnos.   Se la respecta y se la quiere mucho.  Fiel a su artista.
- Jose Cortes

"Yaelisa is really one of a kind. Her choreographies and sense of flamenco are so unique, they work in concert halls and small tablaos alike. As a teacher, she is one of the only ones really teaching what is needed. She can sing and understands the nuances and delicate aspects of flamenco. She is not to be missed! “  -Fanny Ara, Dancer/Choreographer

Conozco hace muchos años Yaelisa, y para mi ella es una artista increible de todas las maneras, professional y flamenca de verdad.  Maestra, con un respeto a las ramas de flamenco, y es un honor grande trabajar con ella.  De su querido amigo y compañero de hoy para siempre. Jesús Montoya, cantaor de Sevilla
