Flamenco Chicago Classes & Events

How our scheduling works:

Our regular weekly classes usually run in 6-week, 6-class sessions at $108/session prepaid online in advance.  Students must enroll by the start date of each class, and, if you're on our elist, we'll be letting you know about special discounts and offers available only to persons on our list (such as our early-bird enrollment tuition discount, occasional opportunities to join a class in progress after the start date if we have room, and invitations to special events).

Students are required to enroll for each full 6-week session in advance.  There is no "pay as you go" option at our studio.  If you would like to try a class before enrolling, please do this in advance of a new session beginning.  Drop-in classes for the purpose of trying out a class level are $24 per hour, cash only.

Classes tend to rise up through proficiency levels at the same day and time, so, for example, the time slot that is currently Fundamentals 1 will become a Fundamentals 2 the next session, and a Basic 1 level the session after that, and will typically remain at Basic 1 level for a few sessions before being promoted to Basic 2.  If we required our students to change the day and time of their classes every time they moved up a level, we would lose most of our students due to schedule conflicts, so this is the reason we do things the way we do.  Our system also allows friendships and community to form as students are learning together, in the same group, for years at a time.

For students who are between levels, and would like to catch up with the skills taught in a class level slightly higher than their own, private lessons are always available, at a cost of $70-$90 per hour, depending on the teacher.  Students who are focused and have some natural ability for dance can learn the equivalent of 6 weeks of class material in just one private lesson hour.

Spring II Class Schedule

(Children ages 8 and up are welcomed in our adult classes, with parental supervision. We are not offering dedicated children's classes at this time, and find that older children do better in our leveled adult program rather than in a multi-age kids' class.)

Fundamentals 1 Saturdays 12-1pm (May 19-June 23). This is our introductory class for absolute flamenco beginners (whether or not you have previous experience in another form of dance). Learn the intriguing and beautiful use of hands, arms, and upper body as well as fun and rhythmic sounds of the feet.  Click for more information and to enroll.

Fundamentals 2/Basic 1 Thursdays 8:15-9:15pm (May 17-June 21). The second of the two sessions of our introductory class level for flamenco beginners (whether or not you have previous experience in another form of dance).  If, last session, you were attending Fundamentals 1 in this time slot, this is still your class. Click for more information and to enroll. 

Basic 3 Thursdays 7:15-8:15pm (May 17-June 21).  Flamenco technique class geared toward students who have a minimum of one year of previous flamenco study.  If you were attending Basic 2 in this time slot last session, you are now promoted to Basic 3, and this is still your class.  In this session, we begin teaching a choreography por alegrias.  Click for more information and to enroll.

Basic 3/Pre-Intermediate Saturdays 11am-12noon (May 19-June 23).  Flamenco technique class geared toward students who have 2 to 3 years of previous flamenco study.

Rosetta Magdalen is an amazing teacher. She is inspired and inspiring. The assistant instructors and more senior dancers are wonderful. I have been with Flamenco Chicago for about 3 years and I have performed in several showcases (recitals). The atmosphere is warm and welcoming; the music and other students are invigorating and encouraging. My only lament is that I should have started this years ago. Thank you Rosetta and Flamenco Chicago.
