|Periodically, Flamenco Arts Northwest offers two- and three-day flamenco workshops, with two levels. Although not long enough to teach a whole choreography, this amount of time allows for an introduction to a guest teacher's style and for the students to get a fresh perspective and new ideas. Flamenco Arts Northwest draws from a pool of nationally known and internationally recognized teachers who have a good rapport with students and offer an excellent value: reasonable prices and generosity in the classroom.|
