Think of it as bootcamp for flamenco dancing. In an atmospheric building in Seville's Macarena district, great flamenco dancers attempt to teach all levels of flamenco dance to foreign students. I spent two weeks on an intensive course - 3 hours of dance classes per day, 2 hours of compas (rhythm) classes; and 1 hour of Spanish language per day. So it was truly an immersion. The teachers were fantastic dancers, and very lovely, however they weren't exactly ones to throw complements around to our rather hapless, uncoordinated bunch...but after 2 weeks I felt the improvement in my dancing, fitness and Spanish to be something of a small miracle. Taller also arranged my accommodation in a homestay with a young couple across the street, which made me feel very much at home in Seville. The course and accommodation were great value, and the school lets students know of all the flamenco happenings around town - and as a result we saw some great shows that many tourists would miss.
