Finding Quality Children's Flamenco Dance Classes

You're looking for children's flamenco dance classes for your 8-12-year-old but how do you find a good class? What questions do you ask?  Here is some advice. 

  • Insist on non-competitive kid's Flamenco dance classes where everyone is friendly and your child will always feel welcome.
  • Find a class where the Flamenco teacher understands that the pace of the class has to be good for your child. 
  • A must have are Flamenco dance studios with specially designed 'sprung' wood floors that 'give' to protect your child's feet and ankles. Avoid studios with regular wood floors and heaven to bid, run away from dance studios with concrete floors.
  • Look for accommodating school policies like a 100% money back guarantee if you don't like your class for any reason. Look for clean, bright sunlit studios.
  • Most importantly look for a school that has expert dance teachers who know how to give your child personalized attention so they will progress faster.
