Scuola internazionale delle Arti e della Cultura italiana

AEF Accademia Europea Firenze

This course is for beginners and those who already have experience in this spectacular form of dancing. In addition to the movements, the culture and sentiments of flamenco are also taught during the lessons.

In this way the class becomes a gathering point where dancing is lived and shared and in which it is possible to develop one’s own expressiveness. The lessons are completed with theoretical parts on the compas (rhythm), on the dynamics and character of the palos (musical genres), and on the use of the palmas (hand clapping). Through dancing Flamenco finds its full expression: singing music, poetry and movement. Manuel Rios Ruiz defines dancing as the “roundest” most perfect form of flamenco: “in the known history of flamenco, dancing appears as a derivate of singing. We can now see it as an important component of an art without equal. And we expect that it will be called on to be its most complete expression”. 

Teacher: Carlo Volati

FLORENCE DANCE FESTIVAL

For 25 years now, the Florence Dance Festival has represented a focal point of great importance for international dance in Florence. The events of the Festival have been, and are, still held in the most beautiful spots of the city: the Cascine Park, the Roman Amphitheatre of Fiesole, Piazza SS. Annunziata, the Boboli Gardens, the Uffizi Gallery, Piazzale Michelangelo, and Forte Belvedere, to name just a few. In its numerous editions, the greatest names in the world of dance have been guests at the Festival: Merce Cunningham, Maurice Béjart, Antonio Gades, José Limon, Carolyn Carlson, Trisha Brown, Igor Mossiev, Cristina Hoyos, David Parsons, Stephen Petronio, Boris Eiffman, Pasquale Rioult, Alessandra Ferri, Julio Bocca, Isabelle Gueren, Laurence Hillaire, Marga Nativo, and Carla Fracci as well as the leading companies worldwide. Since 2009 the Festival has been held in the National Bargello Museum: the privilege of being able to exploit such a magnificent courtyard for the performances offers an incredible opportunity of students of the European Academy of Florence. In fact, during the summer courses they are regularly involved in the productions and the unforgettable experience of holding a performance in a single site. What does it take to become a choreographer? How do you learn to give shape to ideas through movement and music? Our workshop is divided into three parts: dance, choreographic design and the final performance. Through this course, students have a complete experience in choreography under the guidance of an expert teacher acclaimed internationally.
