Experience hosted by Amarita

2.5 hours
Includes drinks
Up to 10 people
Hosted in English, Spanish

What you'll do

We will meet in front of the tourist office in Plaza Arenal and then take a 30 minute walking tour of the flamenco barrio of San Miguel.
During the 90 mins workshop you will experience the essential elements of flamenco dance in a relaxed, fun atmosphere.
We will cover technique for feet, arms and hands as well as clapping to different flamenco rhythms. You will be able to distinguish different styles of flamenco by the end of the session and understand a variety of rhythmic structures. You will learn a short choreography which you'll be able to record, so you can practice at home.
Flamenco Passion is designed for complete beginners - men, women and children. No special footwear or clothing is required.
After the workshop we will go to a local tapas bar to relax and share travels and experiences. I’ll introduce the history of Flamenco, its roots, the different influences that make up the art form and talk about the great flamenco stars of Jerez - past and present. I will recommend other places to visit locally to give an insight into the history and culture of the city and also tell you where is best to see an authentic flamenco show.
Total time with tour and bar: 2.5 hours
Other things to note
Never danced before? You will be surprised at how much you can achieve!
It's a fun class and before you know it you've learned the art form. A complimentary drink is provided at the bar afterwards :-)

I fell in love with flamenco over 20 years ago one night in a bar in Seville and have been teaching and performing in the UK and Spain ever since! Originally from London, now living in Jerez de la Frontera, I love sharing my passion and experience whether giving an intimate class for a small group or animating hundreds of participants at WOMAD UK.
I am a native English speaker, but also speak Spanish and French.
I would love my guests to return home having embodied a little of this profound, expressive art form that still has me running to train and take masterclasses with local superstars!

This was the perfect way to spend our first night in Jerez. Amarita gave us a complete overview of Jerez (it’s fascinating history and how it is today), a flamenco lesson that was a lot of fun and made us appreciate the art form even more, took us to an authentic, mesmerizing flamenco show while sipping the local sherry, AND a special experience of buying cookies made by cloistered nuns. We never saw them. You spoke through a wooden wall, put your money in something that spun around, they took the money and your cookies appeared with the next spin. Delicious, too. A warm, insightful, unique evening.

Ca faisait grand plaisir de découvrir la culture local, Flamenco pendant voyage. Et même si j’étais tout seul, elle m’a enseigné très sincèrement avec son passion et belle sourire . J’étais vraiment à l’aise pour apprendre nouvelle chose. Et en plus, il y a petite guide pour redécouvrir la ville avant et après le cours. C’était vraiment sympa et je ne pourrais pas oublier ces expérience!! 아시안 관광객은 물론이고 한국인도 찾기 힘든 작은 동네였지만, 안달루시아 특히 플라멩코에 관심이 있다면 꼭 방문해 볼 만한 도시입니다. 더불어 기초적인 플라멩고의 리듬과 배경을 알 수 있는 아마리타의 수업을 함께 한다면 아주 특별한 경험이 될거에요!! 영국출신 분이기에 영어로 소통하는데 전혀 문제가 없었고, 지역 와인이나 플라멩코 공연바 등.. 친절한 소개도 받으실 수 있어요!!

Une expérience où la découverte du Flamenco est aussi passée par la rencontre d’Armarita. Son regard sincère et généreux, sa présence originale et motivée nous incitent à partir en voyage pour découvrir l’art d’exprimer ses émotions par la grâce et le rythme. Merci pour ce beau moment de partage !

My comment is not only in English but also in Russian. Andalusia and the airbnb service are not very popular in Russia, I would like their popularity to grow. Мой комментарий не только на английском, но и на русском. Потому что я бы хотела, чтобы сервис Airbnb развивался в России, а также росла популярность Андалусии. К сожалению, пока в России то и другое известно слабо, а при этом оба явления - про потрясающую настоящесть и искренность, которой так не хватает туристам. Это впечатление дало мне почувствовать себя на мгновение местным жителем, подумать о том, как бы я могла тут жить и чем заниматься, если бы, как Амарита, переехала сюда насовсем. Было ощущение, которого я добиваюсь, создавая свои туры в России (у меня небольшой бизнес в сфере туризма): ощущение, будто я нашла секретный ключ от тайного места и погружаюсь в информацию глубокого залегания. Короче говоря, экскурсия была очень интересной, последующее занятие тоже. Конечно, за полтора часа не научишься связно и красиво танцевать новое для себя, но просто попробовать и понять ритмические азы - получится. Если вы подружитесь с Амаритой, то она познакомит вас с местными коллекционерами, музыкантами и друзьями, а также пригласит вас в свою мастерскую, потому что она ещё и художник! *** Andalusia is a place where everything is real and not for mass tourism, here you can see true life. Amarita is the guide who will help you to know this truth. It was amasing expirience which gave me the feeling that i'm local or that I found a secret key for old andalusian autentic tradition. Classes go in a light studio overlooking the typical street of Jerez. It adds authenticity to that event. I have a buisness in tour industry in Russia and I make tours only with soulfull real people - maybe artists or collectors, without professional guides. And Amarita is exactly that heartfull person wich I was looking for. ***

Amarita was beyond my expectations. From the moment we met, she was amazing. I had a fantastic time learning about the different type of flamenco (it’s history and dancing) . She’s so passionate and it really shows. After teaching me steps of flamenco, we ended up going to a live show. It was authentic, local & a perfect way to end the night. Thank you Amarita for the best experience. I truly recommend her to anyone visiting Jerez! Amarita fue más de mis expectaciones. Desde el momento que nos conocimos, era increíble. Tuve un tiempo fantástico aprendiendo del flamenco (su historia y bailando). Ella de apasionada y se nota. Después de enseñarme a bailar un poco el flamenco, fuimos a un show en el barrio. Fue auténtico y una cosa perfecta para terminar la noche. De verdad la recomiendo a ella y esta experiencia a cualquier persona visitando Jerez !
