Flamenco dance classes

The alegrías, bulerías, seguiriyas, fandangos, tangos, soleá… do not have a fixed choreography, so learning is aimed at differentiating the beats, improvising and learning basic steps that you can then combine with each other. To do this, we recommend our Flamenco courses, with levels ranging from beginner to advanced, both for children and adults.
