Our Madrid Flamenco Dance lessons are fun, relaxed and informal, and go at a pace that will not leave anyone behind or feeling like a baby elephant! By the end, you will appreciate and understand the intricacies of this ancient dance, you will know the steps, will be able to make the the claque sounds, the hand movements, and the all-important pose that seems to declare to all-comers: "Vete a hacer punetas" (we'll explain that one after a few sherries).
Most of all, you will have had a great laugh (except for those of you who were utter mince and can expect only abuse from the rest of the girls...)
Your English speaking teacher will take you through all of the hand and arm movements, basic body posture, the idiosyncratic clapping, footwork, tapping, all coordinated with basic steps in this 60 minutes class. A great exercise and a great warm up for an authentic passionate Madrilena night out!
All participants receive a certificate for their hard work.

What else do I need to know?
Make sure you get the most from the class, and avoid injury, by getting the clothing right. Dresses, skirts and loose trousers are great, and the footwear is essential. Wearing the right shoes and remember the heels are important to get that real flamenco sound.
Below are some tips from our Flamenco experts:
IDEALLY, WEAR STURDY LOW-HEELED SHOES - these support your ankles and make the heel actions easier.
BOOTS WITH STURDY HEELS ARE PREFERABLE TO HIGH HEELS! - if in doubt wear a pair of boots. Use shoes that support your feet and ankles, no stilletos or flip-flops. Sturdy heels will help you make the right stamping sounds!
