What is Flamenco?

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.

Flamenco at Flamencura

All classes take place at Flamencura Music and Dance Studio, which opened its doors in May, 2010 as Austin’s first dance studio dedicated to Flamenco. Our brand new studio is located in North Central Austin at 8910 Research Blvd unit D3. The new Flamencura Studio has two main studios (1000ft, 800 ft), equipped with mirrors and sprung plywood floors specially designed for flamenco dancing. Beginner flamenco dance classes are taught by founder Olivia Chacon. 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 fofor A’lante Flamenco Dance Ensemble’s “The Red Shoes: A Flamenco Fairytale”. Olivia is also a seasoned instructor, and enjoys introducing new students of all ages to the joys of flamenco through her original choreographies.
