What You Can Expect
The essence of flamenco is the emotions, energy and expressions of the dancer. After mastering the basics of palmas (hand clapping), learn how to perform fiery flamenco moves in time to the recorded music. Follow your instructor's lead as you hold your body posture in a confident stance like the Sevillanos, and practice the energetic hand, arm and foot sequences that flow together to build the dance’s compás (rhythm).
Lots of fun, loved the flamenco.
Had lots of fun. A bit of trouble finding the teacher as when we got to the address listed on the voucher, there was a sign sending us to a different address (a bar). When we got to the bar's address, it turned out to be a hostel. Some people might have been turned off by this or not been able to make it to the new address in time. Once there, however, it was great.
This experience was simply put, awful. While the instructor was very passionate about Flamenco dancing, he was not passionate about teaching beginners. He was more interested in performing than teaching us how to really flamenco dance in a way that a beginner could learn. My husband and I love to dance and enjoy lessons, but this was the worst experience on our entire trip to Spain and was a complete waste of money.
I paid for a private lesson only to be joined by another person who had paid a fraction of what I had. The lesson was very expensive and even finished 10 mins early. I complained via the website when I got home and no one has ever got back to me. I would not recommend this service at all.
Arriving 35 minutes late we had to ask our instruction his name after introducing ourselves. Chel is passionate about flamenco dancing but impatient with novices. The lessons were held in the lounge area of a bar making it rather uncomfortable, as well as embarassing, for us. Patrons turned their stools or stood to get a better view of us, one even took pictures. Continuously being referred to as "girls" in a demeaning manner Chel showed his irritation. Out of frustration we ended out 1 1/2 hour session 1/2 early.
We did not get the included drink. For non dancers the instructor was too hard. He could use some classes in how to teach very beginning students. He tried to teach us elementary movements but then demonstated in advance movements. He was too quick for beginners. We had to walk the bar where we met to a hostel on the other side of town in the heat. That walking time was part of the "lesson" The living room area of the hostel where we danced was not air conditioned. The couple with us said they had paid for private lessons but got us included (four women). This was not even close to worth the money.
