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 who, two years before finalizing herArchitectural studies Edmy decided to join the Academy of Spaniard Dance "El PatioAndaluz" (2001), where she learned the basics of Flamenco "Sevillanas, Castanuelas y Tecnicas de Clasico Español" all under the training of Paquita Acosta (Spanish dancer, bailadora). In 2003 she moved to Massachusetts where she decided to continue perusing dance; now under the training of the admired Maestro Ramon De Los Reyes. Mrs. Ortiz has also integrated herself into worshops from Issac and Nino De Los Reyes, Soledad Barrio, La Lupi, Pastora Galvan and Omayra Amaya. She is an experienced and talented instructor who has performed with the renowned Ramon De Los Reyes Spanish Dance Theatre in Boston. Known for her patience, humor and passion, Edmy is an ideal teacher for both children and adults – from beginners to advanced.

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.
Flamenco classes focuses on strong footwork, upper body coordination, understanding flamenco music and compás, castanets, proper posture and breathing. We will begin to develop the muscle strength and dance skills necessary for flamenco dance as we learn a new choreography.
