Broadening Cultural experiences through Flamenco

The increasing desire of schools to broaden pupils cultural experiences with workshops which  combine the arts, an understanding of other cultures and a form of exercise has made Spanish days very popular.

I have taught in many schools and colleges and am a very experienced Flamenco, Spanish Classical and Regional Dance teacher, dancer and lecturer and teach at locations throughout the South.

I can supply excellent references from Schools, Education Authorities, the BBC and Sadlers Wells and have £10 million Public Liability Insurance via my Equity membership. I also have full CRB/DBS certificate and hold Accredited Teacher status with the Council for Dance Education and Training.

I have spent many years learning and perfecting my art in the major Flamenco schools in Madrid, Sevilla and other cities in Spain and in the UK. Among others, I have studied with such Flamenco luminaries as Rocio Molina, Farruquito, La Tati, La Truco, Immaculada Ortega, Rafeala Carrasco, Hiniesta Cortes, Marco Flores and Juan Polvillo.

I teach regularly in towns throughout Southern England and organise Flamenco workshop holidays in Spain. I was formerly resident Flamenco teacher at Sadlers Wells during the prestigious London Flamenco Festival, the UK’s major Flamenco event.

I have performed on stages all around the UK and Europe with my touring company, Cancion Gitana, which has scored notable successes at major arts festivals such as Brighton and Edinburgh. I have performed and taught many times on TV and radio, most recently on a BBC TV programme exploring the spirituality of Flamenco. A huge diversity of previous Flamenco appearances have included quiz shows and children’s programmes and I have taught the rudiments of Flamenco to a number of well known personalities for TV and films.

I often teach workshops at schools and colleges and have taught groups of all ages, abilities and disabilities. These can take several forms but the most popular is a series of classes for the pupils followed by a brief lecture and a brief performance of 20 minutes or so for the whole school.

I frequently lecture on Flamenco and its origins in Gypsy culture, via India and North Africa, to various groups and own one of the largest collections of Flamenco resources in the UK comprising books, videos, rare recordings and period costumes.
