Your Flamenco In Scotland
The Tuflamenco Company focuses on two main fields: education and performance. It was founded in 2018 by Inma Montero and Danielo Olivera after many years of experience within the performing and teaching flamenco scene in Scotland. The academy is based in Edinburgh but we also provide classes in different Scottish cities, such as Dundee, Glasgow, Perth and Aberdeen amongst others. Tuflamenco’s passion, love and dedication for this art is contagious; our company has grown very quickly and successfully and we love trying to make a difference to the lives of our young, and not so young, flamenco lovers. We see them blossom and grow in confidence and ability, with many becoming ‘obsessed’ by our activities! Tuflamenco has successfully delivered many professional performances and shows, some of which have premiered at the world famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival and received fantastic 5 star reviews. Our artists have been taking part in this festival for over a decade and all have received 5 star reviews both as part of Tuflamenco and as individual performers. In fact, our experiences at the Fringe have played a key role in our decision to create Tuflamenco in 2018 and produce our own shows.

It’s with a heavy heart that in order to protect us all during these difficult times TuFlamenco must postpone some of our upcoming concerts, events and physical classes. We do very much look forward to putting them all in place again once this awful virus is under control. TuFlamenco have created an initiative called #WeDanceAtHome to keep working with our students on-line. It will keep you fit and most importantly, we can keep connected during this complicated time. Also we are currently working on clapping, guitar and singing workshops (new comers welcome) just in case you want to initiate or continue developing your flamenco skills in any of its possibilities.
In the meantime, please stay safe & sound and keep yourselves physically and mentally healthy at home.
Salud, Alegria & Libertad Amigos
