The National Institute of Flamenco, a partner of Visit Albuquerque, offers online after school programs for middle and high school students
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., — Enrollment is now open for the National Institute of Flamenco’s Conservatory of Flamenco Arts online After School Program. The Conservatory offers two levels of fun, unique classes for middle and high school students in flamenco guitar, cante (singing), cajón (percussion) and dance. This program is open to all middle and high school students and invites young people to study extensively with professional artists. A particularly noteworthy component of the After School Program is that it offers cante and cajón, subjects that are not frequently offered in flamenco programs within the U.S.
In addition, students will learn a complete musical number created exclusively for the program by Spanish guest artists. Students will perform the music and dances that they have learned in the spring of 2021, and the program encourages them to enjoy what they are learning and work towards creating art of their own.
The program began seven years ago with the Institute’s educational partners, Tierra Adentro of New Mexico Charter School. The Conservatory has expanded the program’s capacity to be able to include any middle or high school students who would like to participate. Our past students have enjoyed their experiences performing and studying with artists from the National Institute of Flamenco, and the opportunities they have also had to work with program guest artists from Spain.
New students are encouraged to apply, and a limited number of scholarships are available.
