Overview

Learn to dance flamenco under the guidance of a private instructor during a 1.5- or 3-hour class in Seville. From ‘palmas’ (hand clapping) to body posture and foot sequences, you’ll master the basics of this fiery dance, which is said to have originated in Andalusia. If you’ve opted for the 1.5-hour class, you’ll earn a well-deserved drink (sangria, wine, soda or beer) at the end of your session. If you selected the 3-hour experience, you’ll break halfway for refreshments. ‘Olé!’
  • Learn flamenco in the city where it was born, Seville!
  • Enjoy one-on-one coaching from your private dance tutor
  • Discover the intricate moves and rhythms of an authentic flamenco dance
  • Learn how to convey your emotions and energy through this passionate form of art
  • Relax in the bar after your class with a drink
  • Choose from a 1.5-hour or 3-hour private flamenco class

On arrival at a flamenco dancing venue in central Seville, you’ll greet your instructor and begin your 1.5- or 3-hour class. Regardless of your level or ability, your guide will teach you flamenco techniques designed to express individual emotion and passion.

Master the techniques of palmas (hand clapping), perfect the posture required to dance like a professional and perform feisty flamenco moves to recorded music. Once you have mastered energetic hand, arm and foot sequences, you’ll perform a complete flamenco dance in the style of a Sevillano.

Conclude or break up your class with refreshing drinks (sangria, beer, wine or soda) before bidding your guide farewell when the class concludes.

The instructor was very pleasant but was reasonably young and Greek rather than someone from Seville who really understood Flamenco. For the kind of money, I found it quite expensive

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.

This was a fun activity in Seville! My friend and I enjoyed it very much. Our teacher, Chel, was very passionate about flamenco dance and culture, and taught us all about the history of flamenco in Spain. We learned how to keep the rhythm and mastered some saucy dance moves! The drink afterwards was cool, too, because we got to chat with locals and young travelers.

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.

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.

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.
