Mixing up the marcajes

Mixing up the marcajes 🤸🏼‍♀️🤸🏼‍♂️
How well do you know your marcajes for Bulerías Por Fiesta?

Do you have enough to mix it up and keep it fresh?

Sometimes it's enough to change up the arms or the direction while keeping the steps the same.

But your best bet is to practice and know inside out a minimum of 5 different marcajes! That way your moves won't get stale on stage.. ✔ 

❌ Don't wait till you're dancing live to try and come up with variations - that will just prevent you from being able to focus on the cante.

And as we all know, the #1 thing when improvising Bulerías Por Fiesta is ... listening out for the cues from the cantaor/a so you can come in at the right time with your super cool remate 😎

Am I right?? 😉

Your turn!

I love finding new marcajes to use, and I've recorded a few of the ones I use to share with you – I hope you like them and can use them in your next patada!

🧰 WATCH the short videos, LEARN the marcajes, and PUT them in your Bulerías toolbox ready for your next Fin de Fiesta moment 🤸‍♂️🤸

💡 TIP 
If the marcaje starts to feel too samesy, you can change it up by varying your arms..
.. Same marcaje + Different arms = NEW marcaje!!
