Born from a persecuted people, the gypsies of Southern Spain, Flamenco is truly a sight for sore eyes. With its unique blend of influences and intricate music, Flamenco is a dance of expression past on from generation to generation. With its vivid colors and emotional expressions, Flamenco will capture your heart.
The Conservatory of Flamenco, located in downtown Albuquerque, is responsible for bringing this culture to life in New Mexico. Lead by their fearless leaders Eva Encinias-Sandoval, Marisol, and Joaquin, Flamenco will continue to thrive through the families of New Mexico.


Each year in June, the National Institute of Flamenco plays host to the largest event of its kind, the Festival Flamenco Internacional. It is held at the University of New Mexico and its truly a sight to see. It attracts students of all ages and all levels of dance from all over the US. Even experts in Spain recognize this energetic, resounding flamenco event. People from around the globe come to see this spectacular form of expression. So what are you waiting for, June will be here sooner than you think.

!Que guay! I had the privilege of studying in Sevilla Spain and visited the enormous flamenco fest, la Feria de Abril. Most of the girls in town spent weeks planning their costumes and securing invites to the different casetas (private party tents)... bright, musical, warm, with everybody running around drinking manzanilla wine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manzanilla). Thanks for the heads up!
