Every flamenco dancer should know the Soleá palos group (Alegrías, Bulerías, etc) very well.

Good compas with your palmas or a cajon will make you a very valuable student with any dance school or performance group.

Claudia's Online Bulerías Module is a must view to understanding flamenco rhythms whether you own a cajon or not.
