Flamenco classes in London
During the lockdown we are unable to teach you in person. Join our popular online classes. We will be offering weekend in studio workshops from Saturday 22nd May. We are looking forwards to returning to the studio!
Ilusión Flamenca is an award-winning flamenco dance school based in Central London. We offer flamenco classes for all ages and levels, including complete beginners. Our classes are held in professional central venues and are taught by teachers with decades of experience.
We have been teaching flamenco since 1999 and are extremely proud of both our team and our incredible students. We are lucky to work with a truly international group of amateur and professional dancers who have been brought together by their love of flamenco.
Whether you’re a woman or a man, fresh-at-university or retired, flamenco can inspire confidence, coordination, and true joy in you. We welcome new students at different points in the year so don’t hesitate to get in touch – we can help you assess your level and pick the best class for you. And if you don’t see what you’re after, why not sign up to our newsletter to keep up to speed with the many courses, workshops, flamenco shows and events we offer?
