Andalucia, the birthplace of flamenco. One might even argue that you cannot truly experience flamenco without having been to Andalucia. The capital of Andalucia, Seville (or Sevilla, in Spanish), offers exceptional classes for flamenco enthusiasts and beginners alike. The city itself is a mesmerizing mix of Spanish and Moorish surroundings. You will easily find yourself lost in a labyrinth of narrow cobblestoned alleys and wind up in a local flamenco tablao. Olé!
If you’re planning a visit to Seville, don’t forget to bring your zapatos (flamenco dance shoes), and sign up for classes with our recommended maestros!
