about

What is Flamenco?

"Flamenco is an art form consisting of song, music, and dance traditions assimilated from around the world. Originating in the Andalusia community of Spain, flamenco is the badge of identity of numerous communities and groups, in particular the Gitano Roma ethnic community which has played an essential role in its development. The word flamenco refers to an identity that encompasses dignity, honesty of expression, and completeness of presence - the ability to appreciate and live in the moment. These are the qualities that ultimately give flamenco its characteristic intensity." -National Institute of Flamenco

Documentary using Music & Dance to tell the story of Romany Gypsies migration across Asia and Europe through the ages.

What is Flamenco Chico?

Flamenco Chico hopes to lift up flamenco’s artistry and history and build a community of learners around this art form. We connect you with flamenco dance and guitar teachers, as well as bring traveling flamenco performers to Chico. All levels, ages, bodies and genders are welcome in our flamenco family.

Classes

What a great experience! As a person with two left feet, I was a bit nervous to join a flamenco class, but the patient instruction and supportive environment made it a truly wonderful time.”
— Jane, 34
