At the School, we offer classes in flamenco and classical spanish dance from introductory/beginner levels to advanced and professional levels. To attend an introductory class at our school, no previous dance training is required. All ages are accepted providing you are in good general health.
Children’s classes are offered based on enrollment and preferable starting ages are seven and older.
Our high standards of teaching are based on classes not exceeding 12 people. During the class, we focus on correct postural allignment and stretch and strength work, while introducing all the technical aspects of flamenco dance in a relaxed, friendly environment. After students complete the 8 week introductory level, they can go on to more advanced levels which generally run from September to June culminating in an annual student performance showcase. Students at the school also have the opportunity to work with flamenco guitarists to enhance their authentic studies of flamenco. Specialized workshops are included during the year to focus on specific elements such as developing their understanding of flamenco guitar accompaniment with the dancer, as well as learning how to play castanets.
Flamenco shoes, skirts and castanets can be purchased through the school, but are not required at the introductory level.
