In April 2018 we will organise the seventh consecutive trip for flamenco lovers from The Netherlands to visit Seville, take flamenco lessons and get to know this beautiful city and it’s flamenco, whilst having a great time! We’ll have more info about the upcoming trip soon. You can join our mailing list to keep informed […]
The Flamenco Underground is organises trips from Holland to Seville! Since 2012 a lot of participants have enjoyed Seville and it’s Flamenco with us in a very special way.
The aim is to learn more about flamenco music in its place of origin and, at the same time to get to know the environment and the culture where this art originates. Travelling, learning and having fun at the same time.
It is directed towards people who live in the Netherlands and are interested in flamenco, especially dancing and guitar playing, but also in Seville and in the Spanish culture. Ideal for people who’ve already had some contact with flamenco and it is also suitable for beginners
who want to learn flamenco and get to know the delights of Seville. It is also possible to be part of the trip, without actually taking one of the main courses, only participating in the clapping workshop. In that way it is easily possible to take your partner with you and add that extra romantic feel to the trip.
￼Seville is the best city to learn and enjoy flamenco. As you walk about the old streets of the centre you can hear the sound of taconeos and guitars coming from many places, the ideal place for an experience of this type.
April is the perfect time to visit Seville. It’s not too hot and does not normally rain (although one never knows). What’s for sure is that it will be fine and warm. The temperature can reach 28 degrees.
If you would like to get to know Seville in a distinctive way, with people that live there, and get to know the Seville nightlife, this is your trip! With us you will travel off the beaten path, we shall visit places most tourists never see, we’ll see authentic flamenco and all in all it will be an unforgettable experience.
