How it works

The classes are on going January to July. The year is divided in 3 terms, September to December, January to April (up to Easter) and after Easter to middle of July. Each term is 12/13 weeks approximately, divided in 2 blocks of 6/7 weeks. We give priority to those booking for the block in full and offer any spaces left to those willing to attend on a drop in basis. We work on a different choreography each term.

You can join anytime even if the course has already started. The earlier the better!


What do I wear for my first lesson?

For information on what to wear to your first lesson please see our FAQ.

Can I try before committing to the full course?

Not sure flamenco is for you? Would you like to give it a go before registering for the full weekly course? We offer one off beginner taster sessions for those willing to give it a go before committing to the full course. The next one is on Monday 13th September 2021.

Where can I buy flamenco gear?

We have good quality beginners flamenco shoes/boots and skirts for sale at competitive prices. We can bring them to class for you to try on if you decide to join our weekly classes- ask us in advance. Please check with your teacher what type of shoes/skirts are required before buying. We do not recommend buying online without trying on first.

Can I borrow flamenco shoes from you?

We have some second hand shoes/skirts we hire to students on a first come first serve basis. The fee is £5 for both items which we donate to charity. Please let us know whether you would like to hire for your first lesson. It is more fun!. Please notice that if you decide join the course on a regular basis you will have to eventually outsource your own shoes.

Is it possible to join the course once it has started?

Yes! The way we structure our courses allows students to join any time. The soonest you join obviously the better! We also offer private lessons to help students catch up if needed. We will do our best to accommodate you.

What happens if I miss a lesson?

The blocs are sold as a unit and it is not possible to discount missed lessons from the total. You are welcome to make up for any missed prepaid lessons by attending any of our choreography classes or use the pay as you go option.

If you join once the block has started we will only charge you for the remaining weeks from your first lesson.

Does the school offer performance opportunities?

The school offers performance opportunities throughout the year at Dance Festivals in Central London. These are optional and not compulsory. We invite all students to participate at Gala Flamenca, which is showcase organized by the school. The next Gala will be held on Sunday 12th July 2020. The show is supported by professional musicians and technicians. Watch the video promo here.
