Join London's top Flamenco school to learn with the best instructors in a warm and supportive dance community, and see yourself progress all the way from complete beginner to advanced.
Start your journey by joining our incredibly popular Flamenco Foundation Course! This 4-week course is designed for anyone who is brand new to flamenco and wants to take their first steps to discover this beautiful art form, giving you a basic understanding of what flamenco dance is and how to learn it. You will learn the essential rhythms, bodywork and footwork particular to Flamenco. No special shoes or clothes are required for this course.
Every student progresses at a different speed, and we want to be able to accommodate this. Some students will be able to join Level 1 after completing the first Foundation course, others might need to do the Foundation course a second time to continue to consolidate skills before moving into Level 1. Before week 4, you will receive orientation on what your next step should be.
Please note that there is an expectation of attendance of at least 3/4 lessons and if students miss class they should catch up with the class videos that will be shared by the teacher.

Frequently Asked Questions
Juan Carlos OteroI graduated in 1994 with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art, producing painting, conceptual video, sound and performance. I continued developing conceptual work in design, and worked extensively in education but my main artistic output for the past two decades has been as a flamenco dancer and choreographer. Since 2013 I have also been devising multi disciplined experimental theatre. My practice has evolved around the dichotomies of my dual nationality/ cultural identity and the split between my background in traditional culture and my education in contemporary art. For years now I have been trying to create projects that unify my various creative strands. FLAMENCO LIFE DRAWING with BATTERSEA SPANISH is the latest venture, fusing my two main areas of expertise, Fine Art and Flamenco.
