Fundamentals of Flamenco Dance

A course for advanced beginner flamenco dancers who want to refine their technique, and discover how to dance with a flamenco singer and guitarist.

Does any of this sound familiar?



I can't hear the rhythm

You understand that flamenco is a rhythmic dance and that if you don't have control of the compás you aren't dancing 'flamenco'. Even though you try to listen you just don't feel connected to the rhythm.







I have trouble remembering steps

It takes you time to learn the movements and when you leave class (or your practice session) you can't remember what you did an hour later. You try to practice at home but you're never sure what to do.






I'm not confident

You’ve watched tutorials, followed all of the directions perfectly, but your dancing just doesn’t look like the flamenco that you see being performed. You’ve invested a lot of time to get it right, but it just isn’t working.




 


It’s time to defeat the struggles that stopped you from beginning, paused your progress, or bruised your confidence.


 







Study the Art of Flamenco Dance

Master flamenco dance technique, find your rhythm, and discover your unique flamenco voice.

Stop trying to do too much at once

Use the technique we teach you in the course to guide your practice sessions. We make it easy for you to jump straight to what you want to practice with each class divided into bite-size sections.

Prioritize the process

If you were ever unsure of where to begin or in which order you should practice steps, watch our full classes to see the movements develop from the basic rhythm to a full body expression.

Connect to the rhythm

When learning a new palo (flamenco style) it's important to focus and allow yourself to become immersed. We focus on one rhythm, Fandango de Huelva, and reinforce it in every class.

Hablas español?

No? No problem! All of the classes are taught by maestro José Merino in Spanish and we've tranlated every class with English subtitles.

Learn a choreography in your own time

If you've ever found it difficult to learn a whole dance (or even a part of one) you can keep coming back to our classes as often as you need.

Cante flamenco, where it all begins

Flamenco dancers are more than just dancers. We need to understand flamenco music and song as well. José shares his insights into the artistic interpretation of the choreography and the communication between the flamenco dancer (that's you) and the flamenco musicians.

Why this Course is Different

Deep Focus on Flamenco Rhythm

When you feel confident in controlling the compás you can start to enjoy the experience of moving your body in connection with the music and cante. The whole course focuses on one rhythm (Fandango de Huelva) and each class builds on the previous with different exercises each time reinforcing your sense of rhythm.
