Danza Estilizada is a free composition of steps and choreographies based on popular regional Spanish dances, Escuela Bolera (studies Spanish dances from the 18th century, called Goyescas) and Flamenco. The dancers trained in this style also enjoy a basic classical Ballet.

The dance is always accompanied by castanets.

Castanets are held in the hand and produce a clicking sound or a rattling sound with fast consecutive clicks. They offer the rhythmic basis for the dance and are usually played by the dancers and singers. With the movements of the hands and the use of castanets, the feelings of pain, sadness or happiness can be expressed with more expression. Specific technical and rhythmic exercises are on the program. We are working on the combination of dancing and playing the castanets.
