Flamenco Classes in Denver and Boulder
At the Flamenco Center for Guitar and Dance we offer one-on-one and group lessons in classical and flamenco guitar and Spanish and flamenco dance for beginners to professionals.
Dance and guitar classes are taught by one of the greatest flamenco masters of the day, René Heredia. Maestro Heredia has performed with the greatest flamenco artists of all time including Carlos Montoya, Carmen Amaya, Sabicas, José Greco, Paco de Lucia, and many others. He has been sharing his knowledge, technique and passion for authentic Spanish gypsy flamenco music and dance with his students for over 50 years.
In pure Gypsy fashion, Maestro Heredia first teaches “compas” (rhythm) which is the most important thing you want to learn. You will also learn the history, culture, techniques, and structure of the art of Flamenco. It has been said that “René is a walking encyclopedia, a treasure trove of knowledge.”
Maestro René Heredia is a direct descendant of the gitano flamenco puro tradition as passed down to him by generations of his gypsy family and the many talented family friends who shared their knowledge around the Heredia kitchen table.
As a performer, teacher, choreographer, mentor, and recording artist, René Heredia is credited with bringing flamenco to Colorado and has received numerous awards, including the Governor’s and Mayor’s Awards for Excellence in the Arts.
At the Flamenco Center for Guitar and Dance our focus is teaching students who are seeking authentic flamenco instruction and a solid foundation in this exciting art form.
