Flamenco Courses

Authentic flamenco lessons by a professional flamenco dancer and guitarist from overseas.

The essence of flamenco is not a choreographed dance from a CD but a much improvised dance, where dancers perform in tune with the also improvised music of singers and guitarists. Therefore, the main aim is to reach a level where you can create your own dance while learning various techniques throughout lessons. For this reason, it is important to become accustomed to dancing movements accompanied by guitar from level 1.

Tiempo's Flamenco Course is divided in two parts. In the first half of the class, you will learn the basics of various types of flamenco depending on your level. In the second half, you will have lessons where you perform in real time with the guitarist.

A professional dancer and a guitarist from overseas are in charge of the lessons. Both have different styles of dance and different types of songs. One of the features of Tiempo's Flamenco Course is that you can learn unbiased dance styles by learning from various dancers.

Flamenco dancers, who are instructors at the Amor de Dios Flamenco Academy in Spain, are extremely popular with Japanese people and have visited Japan several times in the past. Thus students can take high-level lessons during the foreign dancer’s stay in Japan. The instructors and guitarists will be replaced regularly but basic lessons for each level will be held according to the yearly curricula. Additionally, as part of this curricula, Spanish flamenco dancer Inmaculada Ortega will visit Japan as a part-time educational advisor to give guidance to the instructors. So you can follow the lesson curricula without any worries.

In addition to regular classes, we also hold themed workshops, short-term intensive courses with special instructors, and techniques classes monthly to study thoroughly the basics. All of these options offer perfect opportunities where you can expand the range of your dancing.

At events such as the flamenco party “Noche Flamenca '', you can interact with the instructors, other levels’ flamenco students as well as with students from other Tiempo courses, and freely apply what you learned in lessons. This is one of Tiempo’s Flamenco Courses’ features.
