Flamenco Dance Classes Are Fun!

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."

Flamenco Dance Lessons Are Interesting!

You will move, exploring simple and complex rhythms, footwork, upper body techniques, isolations and the basic patterns, posture, and compás (rhythm), incorporated into both choreography and participatory “Fiesta Style” Flamenco.
