Hire a Spanish Flamenco Dancer

Hire a Spanish Flamenco Dancer for any Spanish themed event.

I often receive enquiries from people who want to know if I can bring a Flamenco Dancer with me.

The answer is absolutely yes and I have thought that perhaps a helpful way to supply the relevant information in in question answer form based upon the enquiries that I receive.

Are your flamenco dancers professional?

Yes, all of my flamenco dancers are professionally trained in Spain.

Are all your dancers Spanish?

Usually yes, but I also work with dancers from South American countries who have not only trained in their country of origin but have also lived, trained and performed flamenco dance in Spain.

What is the fee for a flamenco dancer?

Between 100.00 and 500.00 UK Pounds depending on the length of their performance, the  distance needed to travel and any overnight accommodation expenses.

Will you accompany them with flamenco guitar playing?

Yes, this is vital for the following reason:

Although my dancers do have a pre- prepared choreography they also like to have the freedom to develop their dances on the spur of the moment. In this situation they no longer dance to my music.

It is a case of me following them. I have to try to anticipate what they are going to do next and provide the correct music for each section of their flamenco dance.

Incidentally this is the authentic original way of performing flamenco.

What kind of floor space do flamenco dancers need?

Flamenco dancers need wooden floors so that you can hear the flamenco footwork.  They can adapt their choreographies to a small space but the larger the dance space that is available the better.

Will your flamenco dancers have beautiful flamenco costumes?

Yes, they always have several genuine flamenco costumes from Spain and they like to change several times so that their costume suits the mood of each dance.

Will there only be one flamenco dance after another?

No. This could be too much of the same thing for your audience.

Normally the format is a guitar solo to get the audience in the mood, followed by a flamenco dance and then perhaps a duet of castanets and guitar. Then further developments of this theme.

This seems to work very well but we would need to discuss with you to make sure it fits with your plans for your event.

Do you both need a changing room?

That would be great but we can work with whatever is available. It is more important that the dancer should have  a changing space.
