Flamenco at Flamencura

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