Student testimonials

So grateful to be a part of this amazing flamenco dance school, Angela ensures students always have master classes & events to attend, a performance to work towards, and beautiful choreography in lessons always accompanied by a guitarist. If you love to dance and want to feel absorbed into the true flamenco spirit come and join us!


It’s an absolute privilege being taught by a true flamenco professional. I love attending the class, everyone’s friendly, it’s good fun and I walk out of there feeling totally energised.
