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!!

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.

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 :-)

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.

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!
