AN APPROACH TO THE GIPSY TRADITION AND CUSTOMS

María del Mar Gea, a dance teacher specialised in flamenco, explains: 'The meaning of the Workshop on Partying. Traditional Gipsy Culture is to approach and to get to know, from a subjective point of view, the gipsies' tradition and customs through the flamenco'. The third edition of the Workshop on Partying. Traditional Gipsy Culture, included in the offer of the Secretariat for Culture of the UA, will be given at the Sala Salvador Allende from 12 March to 19 May, on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11:30 to 13:30 hours.

The course is available to anybody who is interested in flamenco art and in broadening their knowledge about gipsy culture, as well as in knowing the role of the music, the songs and the dance. Gea points out that 'the goal of this course is that the attendants get near to the gipsies, people who coexist and belong to our society. Besides, we are not so different and finding the things in common is important”.

Félix Amador, a guitarist who accompanies the Conservatorio Profesional de Danza de Alicante, and flamenco singer Alberto Dual will participate in the workshop. The teacher of the workshop explains that the course will also 'provide with the teaching material, such as books or leaflets from the Asociación Gitana de Arakerando or the Federación de Asociaciones Gitanas of the Comunidad Valenciana'.
