Mom's evaluation: These Marbella flamenco classes taught by Isabel are really great. I have been taking the adult classes for about 3.5 years now and find the teacher to be so inspirational. She´s a very talented dancer, but also has the ability to teach, which is not always easy to find. She has a lot of patience, yet is demanding when need be. She has a very warm personality, which I imagine with all her other great qualities, makes her very likable by the children she teaches after school. 

The only requirement that adults have is a pair of flamenco shoes and the desire to dance. It´s recommended to buy a skirt, but it´s not obligatory. It´s nice to have that extra layer in winter, but come summer, we leave the skirt and we are down to our shorts. Even the shoes aren´t really necessary if you´re there just to try the class out a few times. 

I started out not knowing a thing about flamenco and began in Isabel´s beginners Sevillanas class. After several months I got the hang of it, as there are only four choreographies and I didn´t find it too challenging to pick up. Then I advanced to the intermediate class and move at a much faster pace. 

The children are required to buy flamenco shoes, a black flamenco skirt, and a black leotard. When taking Marbella flamenco classes with Isabel you learn so much more than dance - she also explains the music, the history and culture of flamenco. She´s very passionate about her work and it spreads out to everyone else in the room. 

If you don´t speak Spanish, I wouldn´t worry too much about it. All you really need to do is follow. After a while you´ll be picking up on all her cues and soon you´ll be speaking Spanish yourself. If your children don´t speak Spanish, then I wouldn´t worry about this either as they just need to follow and it´s one of the best ways for your child to learn a new language. Grade: 10
