ABOUT FLAMENCO DANCE CLASSES
The Flamenco Studio was established in 2000 by Simone Pope as a centre for flamenco dance tuition and performance in Brisbane.
Since it’s establishment it has become Brisbane’s best known flamenco dance centre, offering regular general classes, private tuition, student performance groups, workshops, and its yearly student concerts with ¡¡Toma Flamenco!!
Classes are available for beginners to advanced students, encompassing technique for upper body and feet, and specific choreographies.
As Flamenco is not only a dance artform, Simone’s aim is to teach students all of the elements of flamenco – not only steps, but also the important role of the music (guitar, singing and compás) as well as the history and culture of flamenco.
WHO ARE THE CLASSES FOR?
New Beginner classes are designed for adults men and woman, although older children are welcome. No dance experience is necessary.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
8 week term $175 (1.25hrs per class)
Simone Pope – Director and Teacher Simone’s discovery of Flamenco music and dance began in 1990. Training with some of the best flamenco dancers in Australia, Simone decided to devote herself entirely to flamenco and in 1998 she took her first trip to Spain to dedicate herself to the art of flamenco. Since that time Simone has become an established and accomplished flamenco dance artist both in Brisbane and throughout Australia. Guided by some of Spain’s finest dancers, including Belén Fernandez, Pili Ogalla, Mercedes Ruiz, Andres Peña, La Truco, Maria Juncal, Isabel Bayon, La China, La Tati, Ciro, and Manuel Reyes, Simone returns to Spain every year to immerse herself in the latest technical and artistic directions of Flamenco.
