¡Olé! Get to the heart of Spanish culture with a private Madrid flamenco class. Your Spanish Flamenco teacher will explain the moves of the world’s most passionate dance at your own pace.
Our Madrid Flamenco class is fun, relaxed and informal, and go at a pace that will not leave anyone behind or feeling like a baby elephant! Your dance 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.
“¡Vete a hacer puñetas!” (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 rubbish and can expect only abuse from the rest of the girls…)
This is a great exercise and a great warm up for an authentic passionate Madrileña night out! By the end, you will appreciate and understand the intricacies of this ancient dance. You will know the steps, and most importantly, will be able to make the claqué sounds, hand movements, and the all-important pose that seems to declare to all-comers:

Wearing the right shoes and remember the heels are important to get that real flamenco sound. There’s nothing more uninspiring than a Flamenco dancer in flip flops or flats, so get it right and avoid being thrown out of the Sevilla Cigarette factory… below are some tips from our Flamenco experts:
