Flamenco course
Oct 2018 • Solo
If you like the South of Spain and are interested in practicing Flamenco, then you will enjoy booking a course at Flamenco La Fuente. Cristina Serrano is a skilled dancer and equally experienced and enthusiastic teacher and will happily tell you all you want to know about the structure of various dances, the rhythm, clapping and of course technique. It is fun learning so many new steps and get more awareness concerning one's body posture and appearance. In the end of the lesson one's heart and head are full of the lovely music and one is eagerly waiting for the next day. Many thanks!!

A MUST DO ON YOUR LIST FOR FAMILIES, DANCE ARTISTS AND ENTHUSIASTS. ENJOY at Escuela de Flamenco la Fuente.
Jul 2018 • Solo
As a dance educator I attended escuela de flamenco la fuente as a workshop to learn the basics of flamenco. By the end of the week I had learned Palmas (rythmical clapping in two styles) along with footwork , intricacies of hands/arms, ending the week with a simple but challenging choreography in flamenco tangos. It was an experience that has influenced me to take my learning further in flamenco.

Cristina and her family were most accommodating and helpful from sending my first email of enquiry up until my arrival, where i was met by Cristina who escorted me to my hotel.

Her teaching was clear and precise with instruction making it easy to follow. Cristina is very patient and will work at a standard to your suit your ability, not once did I feel intimidated by her professionalism.

I highly recommend her workshop for anyone who is interested to learn or just have a basic understanding of flamenco to appreciate a music or flamenco performance. There is nothing more fun than learning a new dance style at leisure or for pleasure and this is a perfect way to understand and learn a little of Spanish culture and passion.

About capileira..... spectacular and filled with warmth is the topography (just like it's wine ❤❤❤❤). I have certainly been inspired to continue my learning.

Wonderfull flamenco course in beautiful mountain village
Jul 2018 • Family
Fine and fun five day flamenco course for absolute beginners. Christina’s teaching is based on joy and love of flamenco. And she is very passionate, motivating and patient. She will tell you that se does not speak or teach in English. But do not let that put you off ;-). Her English works perfect with her flamenco teaching. We had a wonderful week with steps and clapping, lovely rhythms and fun. Thank you :-)

Enjoyed the flamenco music and dance demonstration
Oct 2017 • Friends
We went to an evening demonstration and explanation of flamenco. As a result, I now understand flamenco more and can appreciate it better. The dancer and musician both spoke about the history of flamenco. I hadn’t realized that it’s a conversation between the dancer and musician and singer and thus somewhat improvisational. We were moved by the beauty and intensity of the performance. This is a small space and so we recommend coming early to get good seats.

Flamenco rhythms taught by fantastic teachers in the heart of the pueblo
Apr 2017
My husband and I had a course over three days in flamenco rhythms at Christina's flamenco school in the centre of Capileira village, high in the mountains of Andalucia. We were really impressed by our tutors Paula and Miguelo, who took us through a well-planned progression of different flamenco rhythms, accompanied by passionate and energetic flamenco guitar and dance. They are friendly, warm and talented people who inspired and took us through the basics of the 'Compas' rhythms of flamenco, and how to clap an accompaniment (Palmas) to Tangos, Alegrias, Soleas and Bulerias.
Everything was taught in a relaxed, fun and accessible way and Paula and Miguel's English is very good (if like us your Spanish is rusty!)
Christina's planning and communication beforehand was very good and contributed to this being one of the highlights of our holiday - I can't recommend Flamenco La Fuente enough!

Fun in an incredible environment
Sep 2016 • Couples
My girl-friend and I made a 5 days beginners course with Cristina and Paula. We both had no experience and were absolute beginners. The lessons were conducted in a wonderful manner and the final choreography we learned till the end was so much fun, with the result that we even performed it on our journey back clapping and dancing.
The school is located in a stunning environment. These impressions will certainly accompany us for a long time.
To sum up, we can say that we were treated very warmly and we now already miss the time.

Flamenco Dance Tuition
Aug 2016 • Couples
Very professional and friendly tuition by professional flamenco dancers Christina Serrano and her daughter Paula. Both very attentive to technical: footwork, body lines, posture and attitude before going on to learn the choreography in the second hour. Very helpful that we were able to video Paula dancing the entire routine plus the palmas of the rhythm. A memorable and satisfying experience and we will certainly be returning again.

Magical moments in Marbella - Olé!
Jun 2016 • Friends
The admiration for Cristina, her Flamenco attitude and her way of teaching us the art of Flamenco is growing each year! ... as is the number of participants from our dancing group in Norway. This year we were 8 ladies all arriving at the dancing studio being tired from work and feeling low. After 8 hours of dancing, we returned home (although we would have loved to stay much longer) - feeling happy and passionated! Thank you, Cristina, for being our inspiration! See you next year in Capileira!
