Product Description

Enjoy yourself learning this exciting, highly structured dance. The Sevillanas will improve your coordination, sense of rhythm, balance, postural alignment, and stamina. One of Spain's oldest and most traditional dances, Sevillanas are the Flamenco of the people. Both men and women learn it in childhood.

Sevillanas are a colorful, social, partner dance that Spaniards dance when they are among their own, and at celebrations. Sevillanas are also popular as part of the repertoire of Flamenco shows presented on the stage.

In the first choreography, Puela Lunaris teaches you the Sevillanas in the traditional popular style.

The second choreography presents them as a performing art, using the fan to enhance the visual effect of Sevillanas performance. Here Puela will teach you the Spanish fan technique, which you can apply in any other fan dance as well. You also learn how to use your fan in connection with the Sevillanas dance steps.

Whether you are a professional performer or not, learning these choreographies will develop in you a level of grace and presence that will enhance the way you carry yourself in everyday life. You can dance the Sevillanas on your own...with a partner...or you can invite friends to join you in the fun!

From the Contributor

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 Gabriel s 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 & 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!"

I became interested in Puela Lunaris's DVDs through World Dance New York, which is better known for its bellydance instructional videos. And while Lunaris has done work on the Zambra (the style of flamenco most closely associated with oriental dance) it is important to note that this video has nothing whatsoever to do with bellydance. In fact, the sevillanas are not even flamenco. They are an old, very strictly structured Spanish social dance which is sometimes performed in flamenco shows, but is also done socially in Spain. This DVD not only introduces the dance, but does an excellent job at showing how it can be performed alone, in a pair in a relaxed, social manner, and in a more showy performance style with fans.

The good:
As much as I generally do not like choreographies, this is the dance for them, since every sevillana is the same. The first choreo section is an extremely lengthy breakdown of all the movements necessary for all four sections of the sevillana dance. Lunaris is painstaking in demonstrating the steps, repeating them many times over, and then adding arms. There is instruction on posture, arm movement and placement, arm variations, the different styles of hand floreos.

Lunaris often also shows variations that can be introduced, not in the steps per se, but in the upper body styling or arm movements. This is where the dancer can express his or her individuality, since the steps are fixed. She also briefly describes how men's arm and handwork differs from women's.

In the second choreography, Lunaris has mini workshops on fanwork and on dancing with a partner, and runs through the entire choreography again using the fan.

This is the third learning program that I review from Puela Lunaris and it has been abundant in benefit to my belly dancing. There is an elegance and natural flow lent from one to the other that places a signature of the dances yet there are similarities involved. In this program I am intrigued by the careful skill of both fan and footwork executed during the performance by Puela and partner. I learned that the Sevillanas dance is either by self image with a partner or mirroring with a partner.

The choreograpy was initiated by moving from left shoulder to left shoulder diagonally, or heart to heart, left to right.

There is a precise technique for beautiful flamenco hands taught by Miss Lunaris which has embellished my belly dancing tremendously.

Brasello por fuera, pasadas,careo were interesting to learn where partners almost have a face off in skillful dance.

There is mini workshop on arm work-How to use the arms in turning for momentum and stopping,2 different turning techniques with different arm combinations

11 combinations loaded with elegant footwork and embellished by beautiful hands and arms

This program is very well described and executed.

There is an excellent fan technique and its merging into sevillanas choreography which is skillful and beautifully presented by Ms Lunaris and dance partner. Ms Lunaris is so pleasant and easy to learn from. This expressive and bold dancing will definitely build you as a dancer, be it flamenco or as for me, belly dance.

Format: DVD
The Sevillanas is a very complicated dance but Puela Lunaris performs it beautifully. Her instruction has one major flaw: During the instructional sections, she will be facing 1 direction, then when she goes on to demonstrate that section, she will be facing the other direction. Actually, in one of the instructional sections, she switches directions in the middle of the section (she starts in one direction then continues (i.e the next step in the combination) in the opposite direction), without there having been a transition or turn. I wish these things would have been caught by the editor.

In the same bent, she will sometimes say one thing and do another (she will say "flat" but do a "ball"), a sign of poor editing or laziness. The dance can be learned by mirroring her, but there will be times when you have to make your own decision on how you are going to do something because the instruction conflicts with the demonstration.

Though the video containing the Farruca contains some of the same discrepancies that made the Sevillanas video difficult to follow, I found it much easier to pick up (though be prepared for several weeks or months of practice for either one!)

In my discovery of Gypsy bellydance, I noticed there were alot of flamenco moves and hand gestures. I went on to Amazon and checked out reviews of flamenco DVDs finding that Dance Today and Flamenco You Can Do It (both demonstrated by Puela Lunaris) had great reviews- many from other bellydancers!
After quickly receiving the DVDs, I was very impressed on the step-by-step instruction and the enthusiasm and charm of Ms. Lunaris .
I would certainly recommend these two DVDs to learn this beautiful art.
I'm pretty sure clips of these DVDs can be reviewed on YouTube.
