‘Dance with a passion that is constantly on the verge of exploding’
Dame Hazel Acosta
Alianza Flamenca has dedicated over 25 years to developing a global Flamenco training method.
Alianza Flamenca was born out of the need to share knowledge of and spread love and passion for the mystical art form that is Flamenco. We strongly believe in what we teach. No matter the heritage from which you originate, if you can put one foot in front of another, you can dance!
Our vision was to create a globally accessible Flamenco syllabus, which not only prepares dancers to enter professional classes in Spain, but also provides a training method for teachers and examiners alike. Alianza Flamenca is a space in which dancers of any age, nationality, background and ability are welcome.
In 2010, Flamenco achieved a new status when it was pronounced a World Heritage Treasure.
In 1995, Alianza Flamenca training commenced in various dance studios within South Africa and Europe, namely Greece and Malta. Centres have continued to grow internationally, now reaching as far as Australia, Germany and India. The high standards of Alianza Flamenca were recognised in 2016, when honoured founding member, Hazel Acosta received the esteemed award of Merit of Dame Commander by HRH King Felipe VI of Spain.
