Experience the famous flamenco during a lively dance class in Barcelona! Learn the basic steps as you move to the rhythms of this traditional Spanish musical genre. Discover the strength and sensitivity behind flamenco dancing and learn about the most popular flamenco styles. After the dance class, Institut Flamenco’s founder David will take you out to a local bar for tapas, drinks, and a chance to bond over your newfound love for flamenco - in true Spanish style!
We arrived and were greeted by David, who was very kind and took pictures and videos for us while we were participating in the class. The dance studio is very big and spacious, with lots of mirrors. We joined the class and followed along with the teacher's instructions. Flamenco is not an easy dance, but very fun! The teacher is very patient and kept repeating the steps so that we would get it perfectly. David, who is a music teacher, then played some guitar for us, and took us to a nearby bar to get a coffee all together. He was very kind and friendly!
This experience was very empowering and I learned a few basic steps on how to dance flamenco. I was very satisfied with it. The teacher first explained how to dance two times and then he would turn the music so that we could dance to it. Even though I was new to this type of dancing, the atmosphere was very comfortable and I had no problem making a mistake. After the class we went to eat at Fisterra and the food was delicious, we tried the tapas that David suggested and he was not wrong, the tapas were particular of Spanish culture, they are called patata bravas and the tata pulpo gallego. I recommend this experience to anyone because it was absolutely amazing. David was wonderful, he was very friendly and he made me feel comfortable. He is really passionate about flamenco and keeping it alive.
