Classes during Coronavirus

Some London-based teachers are teaching in studios again although with reduced numbers to maintain social distancing. Why not get in touch with them to see what they’re doing? You can find full contact details below.

There are many flamenco classes and courses to choose from in London: dance, guitar, cajon as well as singing tuition. Some are offered by established flamenco schools and others by teachers who run their own independent classes. From time to time they also run workshops.

Many teachers take a break from teaching towards the end of July to the beginning of September and start new choreographies in September and January.
