About

The Workshop

In dance classes, choreography and technique will be taught. Workshop choreographies are set to various palos (song forms and rhythms). Choreographies are the original work of the artists/teachers, and students learn flamenco through the experience and unique abilities that these master artists/teachers bring to their work. Originally the Mantón de Manila was an article women used in their daily life. The Mantón de Manila is used commonly as a complemento (prop) in flamenco dance. The use of the mantón brings an elegant feel to the dance, it is also a visual element that can de used to accentuate body line and movement. The use of the mantón requires rigorous technique that adds to a dancer’s strength and artistry. Workshops consist of six (6) hours of instruction over the course of seven (7) days, June 22-28. Instructors generally do not teach on the day of their scheduled performance.

Mercedes de Córdoba

Mercedes de Córdoba obtained one of the best reviews from the specialized press. As proof of her restlessness and creative maturity, the Cordovan also stands out in her role as choreographer and artistic director of shows such as Cámara abierta, by Paula Comitre, which she directed with David Coria and won the Best Show Award at the last Festival de Jerez; Con-migo, presented at the same event by Fernando Jiménez, winner of the Desplante Award at the Festival de La Unión; Ya no seremos, by Ángel Rojas; Sangre by Rafael and Juan Campallo, Nacer para Morir, by Adela Campallo; De Sevilla a Cádiz, by Arte en movimiento and Sonido de mis días de Gema Moneo. Among her many standout works, Mercedes de Córdoba choreographed Venero, the most recent creation for Águeda Saavedra, which premiered at the 27th Festival de Jerez in 2023. She has choreographed for Eva Yerbabuena, a piece of her work Al igual que tú, premiered at the 25th Festival de Jerez, marking the first time that the Granada-born choreographer puts herself in the hands of another choreographer; in this case, in addition, of the one who was her student and was part of her corps de ballet in its beginnings.
