Students will learn the choreography of a particular type of flamenco rhythm (there will be a change of choreography and possibly teacher every two weeks). The classes are given by different teachers who are all well-known artists in Granada so that students can assimilate different forms of flamenco expression and develop their own personalities as dancers. The classes have guitar accompaniment, and special attention is paid to the relation between both dance and guitar and dance and voice. We advise you to combine this course with the Dance Technique and Compás (Rhythm) courses.
The beginner level last 2 weeks, although it is possible to repeat it. There is always a change in the choreography, although within the same type of flamenco rhythm, which enables the student to continue improving. It is also possible that the teachers change every 2 weeks. The intermediate level normally lasts up to 8 weeks. The teacher will advise students when it would be appropriate to change to the advanced level. There is no limit to the number of weeks on the advanced course.
Our teachers have a long history of excellent instruction and are active professionals in the city´s flamenco scene. It is very likely to see them dancing in one of the flamenco tablaos, bars, or theaters in the evening after classes.
A cultural program consisting of talks and cultural visits is included in the price of any course. A talk on Granada (which includes practical information about the city, location of places of interest, restaurants, etc. on a map, opening times) and another on the Alhambra in which important information is given before the visit. The cultural visits are to different places in the city of great artistic/historical interest or with stunning scenery and views. Visits are organized to the important historic quarters, and also churches, monuments and museums. A teacher from the school, who is an expert both in the subject and the teaching of Spanish to foreigners, is responsible for the entire cultural program, and can therefore be easily understood by students who do not have a good knowledge of the language.
Our accommodation is located in the Albayzín (the old quarter of Granada) and is very close to the school and to the city centre. Family accommodation, however, can sometimes be in other parts of Granada and a bit further away from the school. The city centre is about a 20 minute walk from the school but there are also good bus connections available.
