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 an early-enrollment discount for Fundamentals 1, our class for first-time flamenco beginners; 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 are an experienced flamenco dance student who would like to try a class before enrolling or in order to find the best class level for you, 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, and are not available for first-time flamenco beginners.
If you have to miss a class during a session, you are allowed to make up a missed class in the closest class level to your own, but makeups must be taken within the same 6-week session for which you enrolled. If you know that you’ll miss a class at the end of a session, you are encouraged to take your makeup in advance, earlier in the session.
Tuition is non-refundable and non-transferable to another session, so please be sure that you are able to attend the classes you enroll for.
Students enroll for the session directly from the class description that you can access from our online calendar below.
(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.)
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.
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.
Dates for our next two sessions are:
Fall I: September 3 through October 12 (this session offers a Saturday 12noon beginner class for the last time in 2019)
Fall II: October 16 through November 23 (no beginner class offered this session)
