This is the best-known course for flamenco dancing (and probably the hardest to get into). Although it’s more for budding professionals (as the list of past graduates attests to) than casual visitors, it does have the odd Spanish-language 'cursillo' (little course) that runs for a day or more. It’s on the top floor of the Mercado de Antón Martín.

Even if you're not keen to immerse yourself in the flamenco world, it may be worth stopping by just for a look.
