D002 Ballroom Dance Lessons DVD - Flamenco, with Puela Lunaris - Active Lifestyle Makeover: Full flamenco classes, complete instruction, choreography. A native Spaniard, Flamenco dancer and teacher Puela Lunaris grew up in the ruins of an ancient Moorish castle in Southwestern Spain. Hers was a childhood immersed in the traditional Flamenco culture. A disciple of the legendary Maestro El Farruco, Puela Lunaris is an acclaimed flamenco teacher, performer, lecturer and choreographer. She has taught throughout Spain at at such prestigious venues as Peter Gabriels W.O.M.A.D. Festival in Caceres, El Centro Andaluz de Danza in Seville, and La Escuela Popular de Musica y Danza in Madrid; in Miami Beach at The Performing Arts Network; and at The Juilliard School, The Open Center and The Instituto Cervantes in New York City. Miss Lunaris has also developed a curriculum with New York City Center Education Department to teach Flamenco in the school system. Puela Lunaris founded the Dances of the World Society to fulfill her mission of preserving important Flamenco traditions that are in danger of extinction. This research work is reflected in her documentary The Rap and The Cross. Other productions by Puela Lunaris include four instructional videos titled: Zambra Flamenca; Dance Today. Flamenco,; Flamenco: You Can Do It.; Flamenco is Hot.; and the music album Flamenco Caliente. Learn two beautiful dances with Puela Lunaris Gypsy Tango and Farruca. When life becomes a bit too predictable and routine drains you of excitement, it's time to let the magic of dance carry you beyond your current horizons. Discover new ways to move, to look, to find friends, to stay in shape, and to shake off stress. Dance is a language: Tell your story and celebrate your true self through sensual, feminine movement. Even if you learn just a few steps, dance will always be with you, a sparkling new facet to the precious gem that is YOU. Gyspy Tangos are one of Flamenco's most sensual dances. More ancient than the Argentine Tango, the Gypsy Tangos are traditionally danced at gypsy weddings and celebrations in Spain. Learn a full choreography in the traditional manner of waving your skirt into passionate flames and moving your hips the gypsy way. Farruca is a passionate and powerful footwork dance, energizing and full of life. Farruca was one of the first dances to develop within Flamenco as a performing art during the Modernist era. It had deep influence upon the work of Diaghilev, Massine and Picasso. An outstanding stress reliever, dancing the Farruca feels invigorating and empowering. I've been looking for a DVD like this one for years. I've been dancing Middle Eastern for years, but have always been fascinated by gypsy and flamenco dance. I've bought several videos, some of them better thanothers, but with one exception (and that DVD only offered a few steps), they don't break down the posture, hand movements, upper body-lower body steps, etc. Lunaris' DVD is completely the opposite. Lunaris breaks down both dances into combinations, which she then carefully breaks down still further, beginning with the absolute basic -- how to get your skirt up to your hand. From there, she explains posture and attitude, separates and explains upper and lower body steps and hand movements, and then demonstrates how to put it all together. On top of this, Lunaris is lovely, and her demeanor and accent are delightful. She provides additional personal commentary on a few steps, too -- for instance, she describes how, in Spain, children learn one hand movement as picking an apple, eating the apple, throwing the apple away. The DVD is so detailed and careful, I'd happily pay this much for a video that provided just *one* of these dances. I also *love* the way Lunaris explains dance as a language. She teaches the steps as vocabulary, then suggests that once you know the vocabulary, you can improvise to music. My only complaint with this video -- and it's slight enough, I still wish I could give this DVD a dozen stars. -- is that she faces the viewer and uses terms like this leg instead of right leg. Nevertheless, this DVD is an absolute must-buy if you've ever been intrigued by Spanish dance, whether gypsy or flamenco. It's a fantastic addition for Middle Eastern dancers who would like to add a little flair to their dance. When I'm finished with this review, I'm going to buy both of Lunaris' other videos.
