Flamenco at Flamencura

Flamencura Music and Dance Studio opened its doors in May, 2010 as Austin’s first dance studio dedicated to Flamenco.  Flamenco dance classes for kids and youth are taught by founder Olivia Chacon.  She has danced flamenco for twenty 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.

In 2013 Olivia received an Austin Critic’s Table award for Best Dancer for A’lante Flamenco Dance Ensemble’s “The Red Shoes: A Flamenco Fairytale”. She is Artistic Director and choreographer for A’lante Flamenco, which was named Austin’s “Best Dance Ensemble” in both 2014 and 2015.

Olivia is also a seasoned instructor, and enjoys introducing new students of all ages to the joys of flamenco through her original choreographies. She has been an adjunct flamenco dance instructor at McCallum Arts Academy since 2011.
