Accommodations are not included.
Long Beach is an exciting city with many economical and lovely rentals via Airbnb and VRBO in Bluff Heights, which is walking distance to the studio.
Short-term rentals or hotels in the surrounding coastal areas near the studio include: Belmont Shores, Bluff Park, Alamitos Beach and the Waterfront.
Transportation is not included.
I recommend you stay close to the studio and team up with others to Lyft on various excursions or rent a car.
Fly into Long Beach Airport if you can. Los Angeles Airport is about 45 minutes from Long Beach.
There are no refunds for workshops to students who fail to attend. Students who cancel within 14 days of the workshop start date will be given a refund. Rina Orellana Flamenco & the Online Flamenco Studio reserve the right to cancel or change the date of any workshop due to insufficient enrollment or unforeseen circumstances. We will do our best to notify registrants in a timely manner should this occur and full refunds will be issued.
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.
November can be either warm or cool along the coast! Seasonal weather would be in the 60's- but we can get mini heat spells in the 80's during November.
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.
4th Street is also another fun street with lots of vintage shops, restaurants, bakeries and cafes. Highly recommend!
