3 Tips To Help You Master Flamenco

3 Tips To Help You Master Flamenco
These three flamenco tips are totally guaranteed to get you dancing flamenco better, faster . . .

So if you want in on my top three secrets, keep reading . . .


PRACTICE SLOWLY. No one goes from zero to hero in a minute..

I have heard this advice from a few different professional flamenco dancers, even the ones with the most fanciest of footwork.

And this is how they get there.

Start slowly, get the muscle memory, and focus on the movement patterns that you want to achieve. It doesn't hurt to look in the mirror too, just to check you look how you think you look.

Then you can work on the speed..

ELBOWS ON TOP. Always!!!

If you want to achieve the 'flamenco look', this is key. Whenever you are moving your arms, keep the elbows on top.

Say no more. This is just how it is 😉

Listen to A LOT of flamenco. A LOT!!!

Again, this is advice I've heard from a lot of different professional dancers.

And it works.

When you're listening to flamenco for the pure enjoyment factor, you really do get the music and rhythms into your body and mind. This all helps when you're learning to dance.


I use these tips on a daily basis – they help no matter what level of flamenco you are at.

I hope they help you too 💖
