The History of Flamenco
Flamenco is the most famous Spanish dance, as well as the most popular dance among our dance students in Madrid, and allows you to experience a true connection to the Spanish culture.
The dance originated in the 18th century in Andalusia, a region in southern Spain. Andalucía, at that time, was a cultural mix of Christians, Jews, Muslims and Gypsies. As a result of this mixture, Flamenco was born and is an important part of the heritage and cultural richness of Andalusia.
The Flamenco Classes
The first thing you will realize in our Flamenco classes is that the word “Flamenco” is actually a term that describes the type of music (toque), song (cante), dance (baile) and handclaps (palmas).
Our teachers will show you that flamenco is a dance to be felt and that must be danced with your soul (duende). Dancing with your soul makes it a passionate and complex dance. In addition to learning the precise steps, you will become a dancer who is able to communicate with their body , as professionals tell a story with their dance.
Through your dance sessions with us here in Madrid, you will embark on an enriching adventure of learning the historic and celebrated Flamenco dance in a fun and stimulating environment, with a native, experienced Flamenco professor. Don’t wait any longer: start your flamenco adventure now!
