Class description

Beginner
First year of Flamenco. Dancers brand new to flamenco dance. The Beinger level classes will introduce dancers to the basics of flamenco movements. For the month of September, Beginer level is the Introductory level.

Please email or phone ahead to let us know that you will be attending.
