Leonor Leal (Jerez de la Frontera, 1980) studied with important dancers such as Manolo Marín, Pilar Ortega and has worked with Cristina Hoyos, Antonio Canales and Dorantes.
n 2008 she launched her solo career in and outside of Spain with ‘Leolelé’ and several experimental performances. During our festival she will teach a short workshop for beginners as well as a public masterclass dance to two (semi)professional dancers in The Hague. In Groningen and Eindhoven there are workshops choreography and technique. For advanced dancers she will teach an interesting Laboratorio de Creación in Amsterdam. This intensive workshop for advanced flamenco dancers is aimed at three aspects that are essential to expressing yourself in flamenco dance: technique, esthetics and improvisation. Through challenging exercises, short choreographies and creation assignments the participants will analyse the body language of flamenco. Leal will create a short presentation with the dancers in this ‘laboratory’, which will be presented at the Flamen>GO! final fiesta on Sunday 29 January 2017 at the Bimhuis.
In collaboration with Flamencoschool Rosario, Dance d’Ali en Estudio Flamenco el Candil.
