Blue Mountains Flamenco
Classes ~ Events ~ Community
The subtle, powerful and passionate art of Flamenco originates in Andalusia, Spain. It is a living tradition held in custodianship by the Gypsies, with deep roots that lie in Arabic, Sephardi and Indian rhythms, songs and dances.
Blue Mountains Flamenco classes are led by Annalouise Paul on Saturdays for Beginners and Elementary Adult level and Children at Dance Dymension Studios in Katoomba. Our performances are offered for community events and for commercial events across the Blue Mountains and beyond. Some clients include: Parramasala Festival, Glenella Camino Festival, Music Hunter, Cancer Wellness Centre and Rydal Daffodil Festival.
