Flamenco Institute Flora Albaicín is officially the oldest flamenco dance school in the world. The Flora Albaicín Method has been awarded the National Flamenco Award granted by the Chair of Flamencology of Jerez de la Frontera. Here, personalities such as Antonio Mairena or Jean Cocteau have worked and been inspired.
Our teaching method is based on deepening the knowledge of the compasses of all Flamenco genres. We work from the root with the study of the “cantes” or folk singing and musical metric. The class sizes are always limited and we personalize a lot in the follow up of the students.
All choreographies are tested with live guitar, so it is important to study the different bars before, in order to have freedom of expression without copying a mirror or other people. Included in our classes, is traning in the use of whole body expression that we have adapted from theater classes.
