Flamenco Dance Classes

Live-streamed to your home :)

Flamenco Dance Classes Are Fun!
Flamenco Dance Classes: You won’t find a more exciting dance style with a more stunning mix of power and grace than the centuries old Andalusian tradition known as "Flamenco."
  • Our flamenco classes are a great introduction to the art of flamenco. All the fundamentals are taught in the technique class including posture, technique, compás (rhythm),  footwork, and palmas (clapping). 
  • The Flamenco Repertoire class is a place for dancers to use the fundamentals of technique within traditional forms of flamenco choreography.
  • Most students take both classes simultaneously.
  • This Summer, the Monday Flamenco II will be covering the 1st copla of Sevillanas with Castanets. We will also work on one aspect of technique with vueltas (turns). 
  • The Wednesday Flamenco 1.5 will be learning the 3rd copla of Sevillanas as well as continuing our beginning technique with learning how to play the castanets.

We asked Dennis Landmesser, how he liked his live streamed class today with instructor Dakota Crist.

The class today with Dakota was more than I could have hoped to expect.  I don't know what to rave about more, the quality of the production or the excellence to the class.  Dakota thought to ask at the start of class if there were any injuries which was especially  meaningful to me today because I have a sore knee.  Her instructions were clear and complete and made perfect sense.  The corrections were thoughtful and meaningful.  Dakota is golden and to be highly valued.

Since March, I've suffered through six months of ZOOM frustrations.  ADI has excelled in solving that misery.  I could have been watching a high definition BlueRay with Dolby sound.  

Thanks for asking,

Dennis Landmesser

Dance is the best way to exercise

I have loved all my classes at American Dance Institute! Michaeline De La Serna, the Flamenco instructor, has an amazing gift for teaching. Not only does she break down steps into their basic components and explain them clearly but she provides background information about the dance form. It’s difficult to form bad habits when clear training is provided from the start. As an adult, I felt a bit timid about starting dance, but Michaeline is so encouraging and enthusiastic that I have never felt discouraged. The dance routines and music she chooses are all so much fun! I have come to the conclusion that dance is the best way to exercise: it provides both physical challenge and emotional expression. American Dance has many classes to choose from for all ages and the office is very helpful and responsive.
