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.

Beginner Flamenco Classes

Our Adult Beginner Flamenco session consists of 8 1-hour classes (once per week), Mondays from 6:30-7:30pm or Sunday 11-12am. The session fee is $108. Students learn all the basics of flamenco, including braceo and floreo (arm and hand movements), taconeo (percussive footwork), rhythm and musicality. We will learn a short choreography in order to understand musical structure.
