Alegrias dance falsetas needed 

Can someone point me in the direction of some Alegrias falsetas that dancers would enjoy?

Cheers!

m experience with the dancers for alegrias says that because its their favorite palo, they seem to like short nice falsetas such as this one: from Paco de Lucia. the rest is rhythm meant to accompany the singer (you can pretty much memorize the typical letras in your head from solo compas)
the other falsetas in the alegria is typical escobilla falsetas and silencio of your choice

Here's a very accessible Alegría falseta by Sarita Heredia.

If you know the steps that take place during your falseta, you can compose or adapt something that accentuates the accents and/or cortes that occur. That is what I think dancers appreciate-when your clearly locked with them. OTOH, if you don't know what they are going to do, or they are just marking, play the ones you like and are solid on.

You have had a lot of experience working with dancers, so it's easier for you to do that. I need more experience, and with my schedule, it's not going to happen soon. But I'm trying... Thanks hombre for the advice!

I agree, I noticed that even in the one that I played in the video, only the very good student dancers caught on to its compas at the end and appreciated it, and the others were lost!

Hello pensoso, I used to teach at Dalhousie University and the Canadian Conservatory of Music, but now I teach privately, from home and on Skype.
