Flamenco Performing Arts Studio

 

The Flamenco Performing Arts Studio was established in 1990 by the Tedesco Brothers as a centre for all things Flamenco. Since its establishment, it has become Melbourne’s best known Flamenco dance centre, offering regular general classes, private tuition and workshops in Flamenco dance, guitar, cajon and cante.

Classes are available for absolute beginners to advanced students.


Our aim is to teach students all of the elements of flamenco – developing an understanding of Flamenco dance along with the important role of the music (guitar, singing and compás).
