Maria

sevilla, Sevilla, Spain

Maria "la Serrana" is my artistic name as a flamenco dancer.

I have my own dance company and tour around the world. When I am in Seville, I teach too. I have been teaching since 1996 and I opened my dance school in Seville in 1999. I am an experienced teacher with both Spanish and foreign students, both absolute beginners as professionals.

What I like most is to introduce people to flamenco, see their faces as they get to understand the feeling and tell about the history of this wonderful art. It really makes a difference when you know a little more about the Spanish history and how that had is influence on this wonderful art. Some people love flamenco just by seeing it, and others have to learn to love it, and I will be happy to show you and answer any question you already have or that might pop up.

As most of the artists in Seville are my colleagues, I can surely get you a meet and greet, so that you can share your experience with them. Most of the time I will dance myself, since I dance three times a week at my own stage, but I will always ask you beforehand if you would like me only as a guide or both as a guide and an artist. You will get a real inside-experience of flamenco. Since I have lived in England and Holland, I speak English and Dutch too, and some French and German. I hope to see you soon and give you a real Flamenco experience.

A Recent Review of this guide

We would thoroughly recommend Maria. Booking was a breeze. Maria met us as planned, took us for tapas then onto a flamenco show which she impromptu took part in. What a treat for us. Being a dancer herself Maria was very knowledgable about flamenco but she also told us all about the history of Seville. We had a wonderful evening with Maria and we would definitely love to organise another tour with her in the future. Thank you Maria for a truly memorable evening.
