Flamenco dancer,

A lifetime passion

"I started dancing when I was 10 years old and will remain doing that for as long as I can. Dancing is my calling, and Flamenco, my lifetime passion – the one thing I know I will be forever learning and teaching, and teaching  and learning, in this eternal symbiosis required by any art form, specially by an art form that contains such a complex combination of culture, music and tradition like Flamenco."

During the class, the student develops musicality and rhythm.

They learn to move together with the music and to mark the beat with strong step and hand claps at the right moment. 


And all this can be done with a lot of fun, always!

But, what is Sevillanas????

Sevillanas are a type of folk dance and music from the Andalusian region, found most frequently in Seville. It is a dance genre suitable for any age and gender, it is performed in couples, but the components of these don’t have to be of the opposite sex. The dance has four parts: first, second, third and fourth Sevillanas. All these parts have four base steps : "paseíllos, pasadas, careos and remate", but the dancer has the opportunity to create their own.

Sevillanas can be heard and seen in celebrations, festivals, parties, including the famed Seville Fair (Feria de Sevilla). Its music is quite simple, yet the songs deal with a wide variety of lyrics and themes, ranging from love to religion.

The dance dates back to around the 15th century and is believed to derive from Seguidillas, an older Castilian counterpart. Nowadays Sevillanas are the most famous folk dance from Spain.

  • Attire for class? Comfortable clothes that allows the movement. For example: tank tops, leotards, tights, and track pants with or without skirt.

  • Shoes? Flamenco shoes are an investment for all. Only purchase shoes if you're committed to classes. For your first few classes you can wear closed-toe shoes such as dress shoes or boots with sturdy heels, or character shoes (it depends the number, I can lend you Flamenco shoes from my collection). Stiletto shoes and sneakers are no good. Call or email me for assistance.

  • How often should I attend class? The classes are structured in such a way that the student gets the most out of their experience if they attend once a week. To progress at a faster rate, I would suggest twice a week or some private lessons combined with the regular lessons.

  • Level? There are classes descriptions listed below for you to assess which level is best suited for you. If you're still unsure please call or email me. You are welcome to come and attend an experimental class before you take it.

  • Private/Semi-private lessons? I offer private and semi-private lessons to cater to your particular needs, whether it to mount or work out technique or choreography.

  • Recitals? Students are encouraged to participate in the annual end of the year school show. Student showcase what they've been working on throughout the year, dress up in traditional flamenco attire, and strut their stuff! But it is not compulsory.

Lessons description

Introduction to Flamenco - Level I

For those who have never taken a flamenco class before, need a refresher, or have little to no dance experience, Introduction to Flamenco is the class for you. This class is an introduction to flamenco's basic elements by developing a solid foundation in its various techniques: floreo (hand movements), braceo (arm movements), zapateado (footwork), marcajes (marking steps), compas y palmas (rhythms and hand-clapping), giros (turns) and proper placement of the body. We also start to work the castanets technique. In this class we will learn the First and Second SEVILLANAS!




Beginner – Level II

The Beginner II is a continuation of the level I, but at a faster pace and with further elaboration. We review the basic elements by further developing your foundation in the various techniques: floreo (hand movements), braceo (arm movements), zapateado (footwork), marcajes (marking steps), compás y palmas (rhythms and hand-clapping), giros (turns) and proper placement of the body. We continuous with castanets technique. In this class we will learn the third and fourth SEVILLANAS.


Intermediate – Level I, II & III

The Intermediate is an improvement of what was worked on at the beginners' level. We start an introduction to more elaborate rhythms (12 compás) with a predominance of festive rhythms, with little or no interpretative load such as Joy. Initiation to dance structures.  In this level, in addition of the castanets is worked other accessories typical of Flamenco dance as fan (Abanico), Shawl (Mantón) and so on.


Intermediate I: Auf diesem Level erlernen wir Fandangos und Sevillanas mit Fächer (Abanico).

Intermediate II: Auf diesem Level arbeiten wir an Alegrías und Tangos, sowie an Sevillanas mit Kastagnetten.

Intermediate III: In diesem Kurs beschäftigen wir uns mit komplexen Rhythmen, zum Beispiel mit Soleá und Caña mit Schultertüchern (Mantón).



In this level we focus on more sophisticated exercises, combining technique, rhythm and interpretation. More complex dance structures and the meaning  of the dance within the flamenco culture.

As in this stage the student already has a good command of the technique, it is possible to start the improvisational work by means of exercises that facilitate fluency and free expression in the interpretation of the dance.


Bata de Cola

The Bata de Cola technique is taught in a simple and easy way to understand. To optimize your skills in using the Bata de Cola, we ll focus on the body awareness during the classes. In the first year CARACOLES is the choreography learned. The following years, some accessories are added. For example, a choreography Caña with Bata de Cola and Mantón or the choreography Guajiras with Bata de Cola and Fan (Abanico).

Sie versucht jeder Schülerin zu helfen, mit ihrem Körper Flamenco ganzheitlich auszudrücken und regt die Gruppe an, mit Freude, Passion und Selbsvertrauen zu tanzen. Die Stimmung im Unterricht ist ausgelassen. Renata organisiert hin un wieder  Auftritte, wo wir öffentlich unsere Freude und unser Können zeigen und entwickeln dürfen.
