Flamenco dance classes continue with Chispita Flamenco

Flamenco dance classes continue with Chispita Flamenco

Chispita Flamenco, led by Jeda Palmer, continues to offer flamenco dance classes on the Sunshine Coast. Jeda Palmer has been dancing flamenco for 15 years, performing and teaching in Australia and India. Flamenco is the passionate song, music, and dance from southern Spain. Gypsies brought musical and dance styles that have strong Indian connections to Spain 500 years ago. Since then the ‘dance of the gypsies’ evolved to become a fiery, spirited, and vivacious art form. “Flamenco for me has become the voyage of a lifetime: the evocative metaphors of the natural world in the songs captivate me and the intricate guitar melodies have intertwined with my soul.” Flamenco dance classes with Chispita Flamenco offer flamenco dance basics for all levels at the Old Ambulance Station, interwoven with flamenco rhythms and music. “For me, dancing flamenco is a great joy! It connects me to the passionate and spirited world of Spanish music and rhythms, and keeps my body active.” A trademark of Jeda Palmer’s classes (in addition to her strong technical ability) is her enthusiasm, her encouraging approach, and her warm human connection.  “It gives me immense joy to share this passionate dance form with my wider community. Traditionally, flamenco happens at small community ‘fiestas’: it is natural to share it with others.” “Chispita Flamenco, meaning Little Spark Flamenco, is a flame that grows stronger over time…come and join the dance around the fire.” What?
