Flamenco Dance Academy in Hove

  1. Flamenco is a great way for kids to exercise. It is fun and relaxed. They will develop several important skills for their growth, such as motor skills, coordination, mental sharpness, physical strength, emotional and personal development. Boys and girls will discover another way of feeling and moving the body through flamenco and identify how to dance with their core energy: feminine for the girl and masculine for the boys as flamenco is all about femininity and masculinity. The dance is also another way of socialising with other children of their age group.

    Children who have flamenco as part of their education will acquire a vast knowledge of the Spanish culture and will expand their horizons beyond their own culture.

    Why is flamenco dance good for kids?

    • Encourages teamwork and camaraderie
    • Self esteem rises and shyness diminishes
    • It helps them acquire discipline and a sense of responsibility
    • Develops creativity, imagination and concentration
    • Enhances memory and expression
    • Develops a sense of musicality, rhythm and musical ear
    • Increases the development of the musculature and helps maintain optimal body condition
    • Stronger body, balance, flexibility and stronger state of mind
    • Improves motor skills

    Children’s Classes

    In our classes boys and girls will develop discipline and structure and will acquire the correct body posture from an early age and improve their motor skills and coordination. They will learn how to play the castanets. Castanets are a percussion instrument itself worthy of study. Kids will make the most of their musical potential and as part of the Spanish cultural heritage par excellence; castanets are an essential part of flamenco music and dance.

    This recommendation was made verbally by a parent speaking to the KalliKids team and confirmed in writing.

    • Sandra, Mum of Lily-May (5)

      Lily-May attended flamenco classes with Alvaro and really enjoyed them. Parents were encouraged not to stay for the classes due to children being distracted during the lessons but when i came to collect Lily-May she was always happy, smiling and appeared to be having fun. Alvaro and Vicky were always in attendance. I found Alvaro very approachable and engaging, he adapted the lessons well to the children's level. Lily-May was shown how to do simple steps using hula hoops and moving her hands in time to the music. This class is perfect for an introduction to flamenco dancing.

    • Anita, Brighton

      I've been learning flamenco with Alvaro for approximately one year and found him to be a brilliant teacher. He has a wide breadth of experience and is generous, kind and thorough with his teaching. I found him to be a charming person who has a great way of connecting with people. His passion for the art of flamenco translates into his passion for teaching. I have also taught children and could see that Alvaro will be able to translate his teaching style brilliantly and I'm sure they will enjoy the classes.

    • Raquel

      I started Flamenco classes with Alvaro around a year ago and really enjoy them. I have danced my whole life (including Tap and Irish dancing) and so have been with many different teachers. Alvaro is a very good teacher because he is detailed, perfectionist, very personal, understanding and focused. I like classes that are well taught and are enjoyable and this is what I get with Alvaro. I am an adult but attended one of the first children’s classes with my friend’s little daughter. She really enjoyed it too and I think Alvaro’s skills transfer to children without any problems. I really enjoy these classes.

    Alvaro Guarnido- Muñoz

    Image of Alvaro Guarnido- Muñoz

    Alvaro Guarnido was born in Granada, southern Spain. Dancing was his passion almost from the moment he could walk. He was just three years old when his mother took him along to the dance studio and from that moment on flamenco became his way of life. He was brought up in an environment where music and dance played an important role. His mother used to sing in a flamenco choir of which Alvaro became a part and started to play the castanets, at only five years old.
