How is this flamenco site different from the others?
My goal with this site was to present material in a way that was intuitive, adaptable and most importantly, usable. The videos are set up as if you were in the dance studio with me here in L.A. As you saw from the sample videos, they are shot from behind so you have both angles. (Haven't seen them? Sign up here to view three videos from inside the studio.) Also, I have a mix of material for all levels from New Beginners through Advanced, technique and choreography.
What equipment do I need?
You'll need an internet connection for your computer, tablet, mobile or television. For dancing, you'll need a good pair of flamenco shoes and a dance floor. The dance floor can be something as simple as an inch think piece of plywood from the home improvement store covered with a coat of clear polyurethane.
How do I use this website?
Log in from the top menu. You'll land on the main page where you'll see all the lessons available. You can also pick which category you'd like to watch. They are divided by technique and choreography, levels and palos. There are also different programs to follow so you can make steady progress. Check out this video that walks you through the Online Flamenco Studio.
I'm a new beginner, is this site for me?
Yes! There's a program for new beginners that walks you step by step with the flamenco rhythm, marking and footwork.
I'm an advanced dancer, can I really learn anything new here?
There is material in the Online Flamenco Studio to challenge advanced dancers not only in technique, but in building aire and truly understanding the nuances of the music.
Can I download the videos?
The videos are available by streaming only. So you need an internet connection for your mobile, tablet, computer or television to access the Studio. Downloading the videos are not possible.
What do I do if I have questions about the material in the video lessons?
Easy! You can write in the comments section on the page of the video and I will answer it. You can also post your question in the private Facebook group for the Online Flamenco Studio Community.
How often are new classes posted?
All the time! They'll average a few every month so that you can make steady progress.
What if there's a class I want that you don't offer?
Let me know! I want to make sure you're getting the classes YOU want! I'll do my best to make it happen in a timely manner.
Can I share my membership with someone else?
Sometimes you might practice with a friend, which can be a fun way to use Online Flamenco Studio. However, sharing logins and their associated unlimited access memberships will result in account cancelation. Your account information, including your login is for the use of one person and cannot be shared. Thanks for your understanding!
How to Cancel
You may cancel your membership at anytime. There are no contract commitments. Once logged in, just go to the My Account page and find the link to cancel. I'll be here for you if want to come back, though! But be aware that you may lose the special rate that you came in with.
