Flamenco, declared Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO in 2010, is the most authentic and popular expression of Spanish culture. This art is currently undergoing vast international diffusion and acknowledgement, so the city of Madrid is offering insight into the many expressions of this art form to curious travelers.

Then you'll get to learn how to flamenco dance, or practice your technique. It doesn't matter whether you are good at dancing or not, you will have a great time while learning how to dance to this traditional Spanish music. The class will be taught by a professional flamenco dancer who will teach the basics of this art.

To finish, if you want a longer experience, you can also add an unforgettable artistic flamenco show with a flamenco group made up of the most talented artists, including singers, guitarists, clappers, and dancers.

We came to know a bit more of the European culture, and although the tours we had in Germany were fine this flamenco tour went way over the top. No boring information that we could found in Wikipedia but lots of interesting facts combined with the true experience of dancing flamenco ourselves.

I always wanted to try flamenco, and finally did thanks to this tour. After a very nice walk discovering an old quartier from Madrid we went to the flamenco class and discovered the secrets of this dance. A lot of fun but way more difficult to dance it than I thought.

We had fun while discovering this Spanish dance we haven’t even heard of it before. Great explanations of the old neighbourhood as well. Very very helpful guide, ask for Laura!
