An introduction to the basics of Flamenco music and dance.
Notes to Other Users
This lesson was done with the Kindergarten class at the Smithsonian Early Enrichment Center. We looked at numerous photos related to flamenco, watched parts of both videos, and explored objects such as a flamenco dress, a fringed shawl, a vest, a ukelele (in place of a guitar), castanets, and Spanish fans. We visited the National Museum of American History, where we viewed several guitars and read the book Ole Flamenco! We listened to flamenco music and the students took turns using the flamenco-related objects to try out their own versions of flamenco dance.
