10 Days to Better Rhythm is a course we put together to help people connect with rhythm at a very basic level.
We were receiving some question about the best way to study rhythm and we thought we could do better than saying 'listen'!
We think this course is quite nifty because you don't need to go to the trouble of hiring or finding studio space in order to practice. All of the movements you can do in your living room with out annoying the neighbours.
You might get some strange looks from your pets or loved ones but that is nothing new for dancers now is it?
We have had some questions come in so we thought we'd do a quick post and put our answers here. If you have any questions you can leave a comment below or send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
On to the questions....
Are there videos included in the course?
No, there aren't any videos from us this time but for this course we felt that it was more important to force you to listen, hey there is that word again.
All of the movements are very simple and we describe them in words. We think you should be able to follow the instructions but if you get mixed up just let us know and we'll help out.
Is the music all included?
Yes, we have crafted new music that demonstrates each rhythmic concept and you will listen to these when you do each exercise. Each lesson will have the music you require as you progress through the course. At the beginning of the 10 days we are not working in flamenco rhythm, we get to that at the end on the last two days.
Can I have an e-book?
No, the course is designed to be delivered to you day by day via our course website.
Is this for beginners?
Yes, if you are a beginner you will find this very helpful. You won't have mastered everything by the end of the 10 days (oh wouldn't that be nice) but you will have had a good run through of the different parts that make up rhythm and how to assimilate it into your bodily movement.
We hope that you will continue to use the exercises and the music long after you finish to keep practicing and improving your inner-ear.
This course is available to all premium members of our online school danza estudio Flamenco Bites.
