Answers to other questions....
No, there will not be any recordings of the classes. I will have moments at the end of the classes (or hour) to allow you to record whatever you learned. You just can't record the entire class.
Significant others are NOT allowed for the dance workshops and the picnic. But they ARE welcome to the optional flamenco show.
Along the coast we have what's called "Gray May." So expect cool, overcast temperatures- maybe in the 60's.
Our dance studio is located within walking distance to the beach. There are many quaint cafes in the area as well.
Pine St., where Cafe Sevilla is located, is a bustling night time spot with lots of restaurants and bars.
