A little token of appreciation on our behalf.....

At The Sydney Flamenco Studio, we know that we would not be here without all of your support - the support of our unconditional flamenco family! As a little token of appreciation we would like to invite you to take part in a 2 day workshop in September.

The workshop will be imparted by Elena Salerno, a WAAPA (Western Australia Academy of Performing Arts) dance alum who is currently majoring in ballet but focusing on flamenco as her specialty. Her main focus in dance and what she will be highlighting in the workshop, is how to use her strong ballet base and technique to assist in her flamenco work. This is VERY beneficial to us as we not only dance flamenco....we dance!!! 

Focus of the workshop:

  • body lines, 
  • posture, 
  • dance travel 
  • arms and more

General Info:

  • Classes will take place by show of interest over 2 consecutive Fridays 
    • 16 & 23 of September.
  • Expression of interest
    • pop your name on the list at the tea table
  • Get in quick! Remember we can only have 16 people per class


Manuel Betanzos Tour 2016!


Manuel Betanzos Tour 2016!

Our little home is now up and running and most importantly alive with the sound of our zapateado!! We are two weeks into class and we are already going full-steam ahead with everyone finding their flamenco groove! 

To make us even stronger, in collaboration with The Sydney Flamenco Studio, Manuel Betanzos is back in Sydney this May to sharpen and refine our art and submerge us into his world - a world full of Andalusian flamenco feeling!!

Manuel will be a major influence in your flamenco development with growth and understanding evident in class after one or more of his workshops. We have proof of this each and every year when you guys are back in your regular classes with a new spring to your step and that extra bit of flamenco magic.

I'm already planning catch-up classes if the majority of our groups participate in the workshops which means that we will have ample time to put our new found knowledge to the test! 

Don't miss out on the Early Bird specials which are available till May 8 via the button below.

Come on mi gente bella! Join me and the rest of our school in this amazing adventure and let's keep dreaming with our bodies!

We are coming back to classes on May, Monday the 11th in our regular time table!



Also, Remember Manuel Betanzos' workshops are coming to Sydney in June!!!
Manuel is one of those teachers who seeks and squeezes all potencial he sees. Even taking just one level is beneficial and whoever has been there with me before knows what I am talking about! Lets improve! Lets get better! Lets have fun!!!
