When can I start?
January and July. If you are keen to put your name on our waitlist please send us an email. Professional coaching for beginners with experience to advanced levels are ongoing throughout the year. We only run small classes to ensure quality, not quantity.
Are you a school and are there student performances?
No, we are not a school. We are professional artists teaching. We may create shows if our schedule permits. If we do organize performance opportunities, it is in kind with our time and not a ‘dance academy given’. Our emphasis is on the learning journey.

Yes, you can. Flamenco basic beginners’ class will teach you from the start.
