3 nights in Adelaide was enough for Andres to put his special touch to a city that has been indulged with some of the best artists in flamenco today within the same year.

I want to say a BIG THANK YOU to Susi and Emma from Studio Flamenco and Rosh from Alma Flamenca for hosting Andres in your studios, and for helping me out with the daily tasks of making the workshop possible in my absence! To Sharon Tickle for entertaining Andres during the day…remember it was her initial efforts that helped Australia get in touch with Andres…and for that I’m forever grateful. And also I can’t forget Farida Rabih from Perth and Jessica Statham for also making this tour possible…with a strong collective of committed individuals we couldn’t make it this far…and above all else TO ALL THOSE WHO CAME to Adelaide! You guys are awesome! )))12095057_10152967802441065_3548966943603675214_o

Since I was stuck in Russia some of the students were able to share their thoughts and photos with us, which I’m sure you’ll enjoy. Tomorrow is the final leg in Sydney which is has to be the unmissable flamenco event in Sydney this year…I hope as many people can go! Before I start sharing the people’s thoughts…it’s NOT TOO LATE TO REGISTER IN SYDNEY contact Jessica Statham asap (jessica@jessicastathamdance.com.au) I hope the following words will help convince you learn from the master…if you haven’t decided yet!

image2Once again I marvel at the inventiveness of Andres as a choreographer and the level of commitment he brings to his teaching. Whether you’re a beginner or professional Andres will give you tools and dance confidence to carry with you for life.”

Roshanne says

“Andres Pena fills the dance studio with a cool, calm ambience. I challenge you to not smile in his classes. He is extremely intuitive, friendly and lots of fun. He expects the best you can do but always allows each student the time they need to approach and integrate the material. Why do I keep returning to Andres Peña’s classes? Because he inspires me to D.A.N.C.E… not just to learn choreography, but to dance with full enjoyment, no matter the Palo.

As for the choreographies, they are second to none… Creative. Diverse. Dynamic. He delivers material at a level that is cleverly constructed to suit the class and this provides everyone with valuable material and instruction. The choreographies he teaches are the choreographies that he himself performs. Cool stuff for sure!Ao-n1ukVPTIfsz_D7MToqcC35BPIzGF7MlcYhhD8ng6Y

Andres can dance sharp and hit you hard straight to the core, but in general his style is relaxed, Andres Pena fills the dance studio with a cool and calm ambiance.

Andres’ style is relaxed and fluid. He provides an environment where you can be that way too. Most importantly he is sensitive to each students needs, challenging them and nurturing their development wherever needed.

Adelaide’s workshops have been incredible. Level bajo got through a super cool llamada and full letra de cantiñas con coletilla.

The Polo is a gorgeous, dynamic choreography with cool and challenging rhythms and body movements. Nothing like what I’ve done before with Andres… and I’ve learnt with him for years.

The Tientos … fully challenged… my whole body is sore… pushed to my max… loving every moment.

… and I haven’t even mentioned his amazing singing and attention to theory… Don’t miss out all that Andres has to offer

Susi says

Ok so if you like learning from someone who has brilliant choreography, sings beautifully, is an amazing dancer, has THE best turns i reckon… And is a really nice person who puts you at ease so you can dance your best … I think you will like Andres Pena ! It’s amazing how you can get through 4 hours straight without really noticing your feet are sore (well, except for the last 10 minutes) when someone is so inspiring and motivating.

I won’t repeat what Rosh said but it i agree with all of it!

Thanks so much Sebastian for organising this tour and Andres for coming again and have fun Sydney!
