Jose and I are extremely happy to be able to share a very special interview with you today. Last Saturday afternoon Manuel Reyes took some time out of his busy schedule to come and talk to us.
Yesterday during the fortnightly Q&A session we run for our members we had a great question from Anne, one of our students from Australia.
Her question was the following....
"Is there a way to make the quiebro look better if the dancer has neck problems (difficulty in tilting, turning head)?"
This month in danza estudio Flamenco Bites we are going to run a challenge around the theme of 'quiebro'.
Quiebro refers to the many different tilted postures of the torso, you can see one example of quiebro in the photo above.
The challenge will start on Tuesday the 5th of June and continue for 7 days. Each day we will release a new video in our members area that examines the technique of quiebro.
Bridget has been a member of danza estudio Flamenco Bites for 3 months and mentioned that she has received great inspiration and support for her flamenco dancing since joining us.
We asked if she'd be interested in sharing her experience and she happily agreed - thank you Bridget!

When learning a new step it is normal to break it down into different layers of movement and slowly practice each part before you join everything together to move your whole body.
Most often when learning new footwork steps you would take your arms out of the equation until you have your feet under control.
However, just because you aren't using your arms it doesn't mean that you forget about them completely.
So what do you do?
