We teach group dance classes, semi private, and private dance, music, and guitar lessons. The current term of beginner group dance classes started on April 2nd. Go to class info.

We enjoy teaching group classes at a variety of facilities and events, including dance studios, camps, and community centres. However, the majority of our classes are geared toward students looking for private or semi-private lessons. Don’t have a class-buddy yet? Feel free to reach out and we will do our best to introduce you to a potential class partner. We feel that it is in these more intimate classes where we can see students make the most significant strides. No need to commit to regular classes! Study in between, and take another lesson when you feel ready.

Are you a community group (i.e. outreach group, retirement home, after-school program, etc.) looking for a special workshop during your next camp, gathering, or event? Please contact us, and we’ll be happy to let you know if and what we can provide.

If you are interested in learning more than one discipline during a single class, (e.g. a 1/2 hour vocal + a 1/2 hour dance) this is possible. Please contact us).

Our private lessons are also available over Skype.

Claudia is a great teacher who is both knowledgeable and enthusiastic. She is patient with beginners and guides you through each step. The Buleria 101 ( for Fin De Fiesta) online classes are a must do for novice flamenco dancers. After each class I received audio/video and pdf support material. The goal of this class is to get you dancing at flamenco parties. I am not as intimated by this palo since starting the class.Thanks, Claudia. Ole

Lorraine CraigOnline Student

If you’re looking for a real flamenco experience, you don’t have to go any further than Claudia and Julian. Their studio is intimate and Claudia and Julian are very warm and inviting. The lessons are fun and invigorating while you learn the flamenco way. Julian’s incredible guitar playing is the perfect accompaniment and Claudia’s knowledge of flamenco is authentic and she will be your biggest cheerleader.
I am so blessed to be able to continue my flamenco journey with the help of this wonderful couple and I’m certain you will too.

Julian is patience personified. My spirited 6 year old daughter is just starting and he caters his lessons to her attention span and interests, without losing sight of the goal, namely getting her interested in learning to play guitar. Introducing the rudiments of technique is complemented quickly with some sing-a-long melodies; which 6 year old wouldn’t find delight in her strumming cords and singing “What shall we do with the drunken sailor?” Julian’s combination of melodies with technique is testament to knowing his student’s development stage. Highly recommended.

Stephan LParent

A maestro of the flamenco music, Julian has refined the techniques of my 10 year old daughter, who already had 4 years of classical guitar lessons. As she put it: “I learned more in a few lessons, than I had learned before.”
While introducing flamenco techniques, he has allowed my daughter to contribute songs of her interest, which makes for great student-master relationship.
