We did the workshop and dinner/flamenco show. Had a wonderful time. Felt authentic - only a couple of tourists there and the rest were locals. It’s a 10 minute uber from Retiro area (or metro).

The food was delicious and the flamingo dance amazing. I was fascinated by this emotionally intense dance. The dancers were fully connected to the audience and we could feel the intensity of the rhytm. I thrived with the energy and sensuality that was flowing from...More
