Academic Features

At Flamencordoba ArtStudio our Spanish courses are an additional feature of the flamenco training that our foreign students will benefit from. The Spanish classes represent a total immersion in Spanish and Andalusian culture. In this way, classes are planned according to the period of time requested by participants and the group’s initial linguistic level.

Three levels have been established: Beginners, intermediate and Spanish in the area of flamenco art for advanced students.
