Observers/guests/family/friends are not able to sit in on this class.
I’m excited to announce that Irena Dumicz will be there to accompany with cante. If you are a current student but have missed a lot of classes this session and won’t be performing, please do join us as an audience member to get a taste of what other students have learned, see some inspirational video, and meet other flamencos in our community.
