Flamenco is a unique musical form from Andalucia, the southern region of Spain. The roots of flamenco go back hundreds of year when Spanish, Muslim, Jewish and Gypsy (Roma) cultures all mixed, resulting in a musical form that was preserved and developed in later centuries. Although flamenco is danced by both men and women, female dancers called “bailaoras” have dominated in the popular imagination, since flamenco provides a unique opportunity for women to express strength, vulnerability, sensuality and an almost infinite range of emotions.
Flamencura Music and Dance Studio opened its doors in May, 2010 as Austin’s only dance studio dedicated to Flamenco. Flamencura has a lovely 750 square foot main studio, equipped with mirrors and sprung plywood floors specially designed for flamenco dancing. Most of our dance classes are taught by founder Olivia Chacon. She has danced flamenco for over fifteen years, including more than four years of study in Spain with the world’s greatest flamenco stars. She is an experienced performer, having danced in theaters and flamenco tablaos throughout Texas, Spain, Mexico, Germany, and Cyprus. Olivia is also a seasoned instructor, and enjoys introducing new students of all ages to the joys of flamenco through her original choreographies.
