Flamenco Chicago is delighted to announce that our owner and artistic director Rosetta Magdalen was recently named Logan Square’s Best Business Owner and also received an honorable mention as Best Community Member. We think this is because Rosetta creates such an atmosphere of community, warmth, and friendliness. Our studio is a place where any student (whether or not she’s ever before attended a dance class of any kind) can learn the art of flamenco and feel the transformation that happens when her body comes alive.
Want to check us out and find out more about why you might want to include a little flamenco dance in your life? Come join us for our Fiesta de Otoño on Oct. 9!

Flamenco Chicago is the city’s most established and welcoming center teaching contemporary flamenco dance to our primarily adult student body.
Whether you are experienced in another form of dance, or have never taken a dance class before, we welcome you with our step-by-step training methodology that allows anyone to learn this beautiful and mysterious dance form. Have you heard others say that flamenco is difficult to learn? Not at Flamenco Chicago.
Studio director Rosetta Magdalen has more than 20 years of experience as a flamenco dancer, teacher, and choreographer, and about her, the Chicago Tribune writes, “beautiful, seductive movement . . . with the coiled power of a tiger ready to pounce”.
Despite the “tiger ready to pounce” description, the hallmark of our system of training is loving attention while helping each student to tap her (or his) own self-expression and excellence. We make the process fun, understandable, life-changing, and requiring very little practice at home — if you follow our guidelines of what to practice and exactly how to do it.
For Fundamentals and Basic 1 students, we ask only a minute or two of practice each day so that flamenco begins to be a part of you. Rosetta has spent two decades refining her system of training to ensure that flamenco can be shared with and available to everyone, regardless of ability or lack of previous dance training.
Flamenco Chicago offers flamenco social opportunities and parties several times a year, and professionally mounted student showcases twice a year, in which all students have the opportunity to participate. We also offer additional performance opportunities in and around Chicago as well as with the professional Flamenco Chicago company.
We hope that you’ll try a class session, and consider becoming part of the Flamenco Chicago family!
