FlamencoNI is dedicated to increasing awareness of Flamenco in Northern Ireland by providing classes in Flamenco dance, guitar, and singing and by bringing authentic Flamenco teachers and performers to N. Ireland. We also provide opportunities for students to travel to Spain and take Flamenco and/or Spanish language classes on an individual or group basis.
FlamencoNI also provides opportunities for students to perform and share this beautiful artform with others. We also provide dancers, guitarists and knowledgable teachers for school activities, international or language days and for other special events, cultural days or international festivals.
In addition and more specifically FlamencoNI dance classes provide opportunities for people of all cultures in N. Ireland to come together and share an activity which increases their social and mental well-being, has long-term health benefits, helps them to find new friends, feel included and become part of our increasingly multicultural society.
Through this website people can also find out about Flamenco dance and guitar classes, workshops, instructors, concerts, events or any other Flamenco related items of interest that might be happening and of interest to people in Northern Ireland.
Flamenco is a beautiful artform and if you have a very special event coming up, whether it is a wedding, Christmas party, hen party or just a party; a live Flamenco performance can add another dynamic aspect to it and make it a very memorable occasion.
