I have seen better Flamenco technique in madrid, but I've never seen show with more passion.
If you're new to Flamenco, this place is a must. The dancers and musicians may not be the best in Madrid, but they take their art seriously and perform with real passion that draws you in and leaves you breathless.
The food is good value (there's lots of it) and the seating is comfortable with good views from everywhere in the room. The room is wide and short (relative to the stage) so try to get as close to the middle as possible for the best view.
If you try to photograph or video the performance, you will be quickly asked to stop by the staff. If you try to have a conversation during the performance, you will be reprimanded by the performers! Yes, they really take it seriously and the show is all the better for it.
If you want to see better technique, go to Corral de la Moreira where you will see some of the best dancers in Spain. But the audience is usually full of tourists who talk through the performances an there is no real passion coming from the stage.
