About Flamenco Worcester
Flamenco Worcester is a group of flamenco aficionados, students and performers building a community of dancers in Central Massachusetts. Our goal is to showcase this powerful, classical Spanish art form to our region, promoting our love for a dance that is passionate, disciplined and elegant!
One can begin flamenco at any time – no partner or dance experience is necessary. Flamenco is for everyone…male and female, all ages and body types. It is a particularly powerful tool for women and girls, helping build self-esteem and a positive body image.
Flamenco Worcester is led by Edmy Ortiz, a visual artist, Flamenco dancer/instructor and Architectural Designer. Edmy started training in Flamenco dance back in 2001 when she joined the Academy of Spanish Dance "El Patio Andaluz" under the direction of Paquita Acosta. In 2003, she settled down in Worcester. She has been studing the art and performing in the Boston area, mostly under the training of Maestro Ramon de los Reyes and his two renowned sons, Issac de los Reyes, Nino de los Reyes. Edmy has also integrated herself into master workshops from Soledad Barrio, La Lupi, Pastora Galvan and Omayra Amaya. Her mission is to keep developing her creative, artistic vision by promoting her roots and identity. As a leader of Flamenco Worcester, she and her students perform regularly in the community, at cultural and educational events, giving more visibility to this passionate traditional art form, which inspires cultural pride and deep appreciation.

Besides is a perfect excuse to wear big elegant earrings, put a flower in your head and put on those bright red shoes and lipstick you were always afraid to wear in public. If you’re thinking, I’m too old to start this now. Not so. Most of the students begin studying flamenco as adults and quickly become hooked on this art form which they might not have known a lot about before.
FlamenKiddos will introduce your children to the beautiful formal folk dance and music of Spain. Girls and boys will not only get to explore Flamenco music, Castanets, rhythm, coordination and movement skills! They will enjoy making noise in a bilingual environment!
