El Museo del Baile Flamenco

Aside from putting on exceptional flamenco shows, the Flamenco Dance Museum also offers flamenco classes for people of all levels. Based on the experience of renowned flamenco dancer, Cristina Hoyos, classes at this dance academy don’t just educate you in steps and movements, but in the passion required to produce true flamenco!

Students can sign up for one-day workshops or, if you’re in Seville for an extended period of time, week or month-long courses. Don’t consider yourself much of a dancer? You can also learn to play the cajón, a traditional flamenco instrument. Alternatively, you can learn the basics of flamenco song or the intricate clapping you’ll hear during every traditional flamenco performance. Overall, this is easily one of the most comprehensive flamenco classes in Seville.

    Once a great writer said that Spanish is a language that comes only out of heart. However, the question that is asked by many people is whether this feeling-based language is as easy to learn as many people say it is or not. Well, the answer to this question is that this learning depends upon the intentions, passion, and thinking of the one who is attempting to learn the versatile Spanish language.
