Day 1:

Arrival, drinks and Paella

Your flamenco journey begins upon arrival in the enchanting city of Córdoba. After settling into your accommodation (see Course Info Page for recommended accomodations), we will welcome you in the historic Plaza de las Tazas. This hidden gem, nestled in the heart of the city, is where tradition meets the vibrant spirit of flamenco. The plaza, an emblem of Córdoba's rich cultural tapestry, houses the casa-patio of Cristina Bendala, a space where history, art, and community converge.

As the sun sets, we gather for a welcome dinner under the open sky in Cristina's courtyard, a place steeped in the stories and heritage of Córdoba. You will enjoy traditional Andalusian fare, including a traditional Cordobese dinner with drinks, in an ambiance that perfectly sets the tone for the days of immersive flamenco that lie ahead.

Every day you'll have three hours of group lessons with maestro Paco Serrano.

Day 2:

Lessons and a peña flamenca...

You will kick off your first morning of lessons with Maestro Paco Serrano teaching you the essential aspects of dance and singing accompaniment in three intensive hours of flamenco guitar lessons. In the afternoon you can participate in the repetition class where a professional flamenco guitar teacher will help you with any questions you may have.

The day culminates at a local peña (flamenco club), an intimate setting where the maestro demonstrates the mesmerizing dance of guitar with voice, and you're not just an observer but a participant. Here, in the heart of Córdoba, surrounded by the rhythms of flamenco, you'll have the chance to accompany singers, stepping into the role of a true flamenco artist. This experience is not just about learning; it's about living the flamenco tradition, making music, and creating memories that resonate with the authentic spirit of Andalusia.

Plaza de las Tazas is a beautiful casa patio where the course will take place, but also where you can hang out with your fellow students.

Day 3:

Accompaniment and tablao flamenco

Day three  will start with another session of intensive flamenco guitar lessons from Maestro Paco Serrano. Spend three hours honing your ability to accompany flamenco’s captivating Soleá style, gaining insights that only a maestro can provide. In the afternoon our flamenco guitar instructor will be available to answer any questions and assist you in mastering the material covered in the morning's session.

The highlight of the evening is a visit to one of Córdoba’s most famous tablaos, where you'll witness the pinnacle of flamenco performance. This experience connects the day's lessons to the vibrant heart of flamenco culture, showcasing the exhilarating talent and emotional depth of renowned flamenco artists. It’s a vivid testament to the art’s enduring power and a source of inspiration for your own flamenco journey.

This exclusive performance is not just a display of flamenco mastery but a celebration of the music you've been passionately learning. It's an opportunity to experience the artistry of a flamenco legend up close, in the enchanting ambiance of a Cordobese evening.

As the day transitions to evening, join us in Plaza de las Tazas for a  goodbye dinner. This gathering is not just a meal; it's a celebration of the bonds created, the music shared, and the memories that will forever link you to Córdoba and to each other. As we say farewell, the plaza, which welcomed you on the first day, now becomes the perfect backdrop to reflect on a week of intense learning, cultural immersion, and flamenco passion.
