In this hands-on workshop participants will receive instruction in rhythmic handclaps (palmas), arm movements (braceo), body posturing (marcaje), and footwork (taconeo). By the end of the class participants will weave newly learned flamenco techniques into a simple choreographed dance.

Mark Epperson moved from Colorado to New York City and turned "the biz" into a second life at age 40. Over the last nine years, he has learned much through failure and success and is happy to share the knowledge from along the way. He's played characters like Billy Flynn (Chicago), Julian Marsh (42nd Street), and Sam Carmichael (Mamma Mia!), to name a few. Based in New York City, Mark has performed in New York City, on cruise ships, and in regional theaters, but he's very glad to be back in Colorado for a few weeks before productions of Mamma Mia! and It Shoulda Been You later this summer.
