What we do:
We are most passionate about community building and arts education through workshops and classes. We also enjoy being part of Canada’s growing flamenco scene via tablaos and through collaborations with fellow flamenco schools and artists. Read more about us.
If you are an organizer for a community festival, outreach project, or school and are interested in working with us, please contact us.
Our emphasis on arts education and community engagement means our availability for bookings at corporate or special events (i.e., birthdays, weddings, or restaurant parties) is limited. However, you are welcome to check out our booking page for information on our rates and terms for private bookings.
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
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.
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.
A new challenge for me at 66 years old is to learn to play the guitar. In a few short months Julian has taught me theory, form and technique, to the point where I’m now ready to begin learning my first full piece. All this with on-line lessons. Julian is patient and encouraging. He adjusts his lessons exactly to my abilities and then gently pushes me to stretch those abilities. If you want to learn to play classical, flamenco or jazz guitar, you won’t find a better teacher than Julian.
