What is Flamenco Future?

 

Flamenco Future is a school educational workshop lead by Anita La Maltesa and Ramon Ruiz that explores the Spanish tradition of flamenco dance. It is aimed for Key Stage 1 and 2  but can be adapted for other Key Stages. It has been successfully implemented in a wide range of schools across the country with an outstanding response.  The workshop culminates in students dancing, tapping their feet, clapping, singing to live music as well as learning Spanish words and traditions. The experience is dynamic and fun! Students are offered the opportunity to learn alongside two authentic artists that are leading professionals in their field. The workshop meets the school's requirements for good classroom practice and is in line with the National Curriculum programmes of study. It is tailored to the ability of all students and promotes cultural, mental and physical development.

"All pupils at the school enjoyed the colourful day and were particularly impressed by the flamenco dancer, Anita La Maltesa, and flamenco guitarist, Ramon Ruiz. It was such a great day for the children and the parents, who were invited in the afternoon to see the children flamenco dance. They also got to see the professionals do it, which was very impressive.”

"You were so professional and really enthused the children. It was a great extra for younger children to have a flamenco taster during assembly too. After the workshop we had year 6 boys and girls coming across the playground with big smiles to say thank you and how much they had enjoyed themselves.I also had a great time and learned a lot! "

Muchisimas gracias!

I have known Anita for over three years now. She has come to perform and run Spanish Flamenco workshops at our school and she has done this always very successfully. Anita came recommended to us by the Spanish Embassy as a facilitator of Spanish culture and music. We have always found Anita to be professional and reliable. She is very good at teaching and engaging children in the learning of her subject. Anita will be a great asset to any school. I wish her the best of luck.

"We invited Anita y Ramon to run flamenco sessions as part of our school 'Spanish Day'. Anita really impressed both children and staff with her beautiful clothing and exciting dancing workshops and Ramon with his guitar playing . Anita and Ramon  were very flexible and addressed children of all age groups in a kind and dedicated manner.  They  encouraged all children to move in a variety of ways and to use Spanish to accompany their actions. The children were very excited to have the opportunity to have a go at flamenco, and their approach meant that the children were easily able to access it. The rhythm games were well structured and enjoyable, and the children had the opportunity to be creative and develop their own ideas. The pace of the lesson meant that the children were fully engaged, and the whole was set in the context of Spanish culture. Both boys and girls were inspired by their teaching, Their positive encouragement and calm manner were exemplary. The children thoroughly enjoyed the workshop, they were buzzing with their new dance moves and keen to repeat the performance. The flamenco teaching really enriched our Spanish day and the children got to learn more about the culture and language."
 A fun day was certainly had by all, with thanks to you Anita y Ramon! We would highly recommend you!
