FLAMENCO FESTIVAL INTRO/BEGINNER LEVEL CLASS – April 21st
The Edmonton Flamenco Festival has just added a festival baile (dance) class for Intro/Beginner students on Saturday April 21st. This class is aimed at students with up to 2 years experience. Participants should have a minimum of 4 classes of flamenco as a foundation.
Students in my beginner class, this is for your level! Don’t miss this chance to experience a class with top notch artists from Spain!
There’s a discount if you are taking the cante (singing) class that day as well. Cante classes are not just for singers! They are a great way to deepen your understanding of the dance. These por fiesta classes have students from all levels and we sing as a group.

Weekend cante (song) classes – for all levels.
I highly encourage everyone to attend. These classes are designed to practice singing as a group and even if you are not interested in singing beyond the class, are invaluable for deepening your understanding of the dance. Never been to a cante class before? Not to worry we tend to all help each other out. These are fun classes with a lot of students attending.
