Creating your own flamenco footwork [one step three ways]
Have you ever played around with trying to create some of your own flamenco footwork steps?
There are many approaches to creating something new but today we thought it would be fun to share this video with you for some inspiration for the next time you’re in the studio playing around.
José starts with a simple step for a 12 beat compás. He then created two variations on the theme using increasingly more advanced elements to develop the intricacy of the step.
Watch the video below to see all three steps from least to most intricate.
The point of sharing this video isn’t for you to try and learn these steps but to give you an idea of how you might play with creating something new. The steps don’t have to be perfect, just let yourself experiment and see what you can come up with.
