Flamenco Christmas Course 2016 at Sadlers Wells with the best artists from Spain including Manuel Liñán.

Choreographer, director, and multi award-winning dancer Manuel Liñán is headlining the Flamenco Festival at Sadlers Wells in February 2017 and will be teaching at Sadlers Wells for Escuela de Baile Flamenco School from the 27th-31st December 2016.

This is an excellent opportunity for all students and professionals to learn with some of the bests artists from Spain at this present time. Also joining the teachers is Victoria Ramos from Jerez de la Frontera, Jasmine Villalobos, Tito Heredia and Nuria García.

Escuela de Baile have one of the largest Flamenco schools in Europe and are always promoting flamenco all over the world. We have brought the level of flamenco to a very high standard in the country.

We have some of the most amazing courses over Christmas from beginners to pro­fessional level and courses in castanets, flamenco technique, choreography, bulerias, sevillanas, rhythm and guitar.

Our new intensive course in rhythm is specially created for any musician, singer, drummer, dancer or anyone wanting to learn the understanding of flamenco. This course will cover 3 or 4 different flamenco rhythms each day doing Palmas (clapping) and if you have a cajon flamenco drum, we will also have a cajon drummer to accompany and teach.

This course is the biggest flamenco course ever done in Europe and it will be full of atmosphere and fire. You certainly won’t want to miss it!

Please do not hesitate to call me to book your place or if you need any further information.
