Get away from it all & Immerse yourself in flamenco at the Oregon Coast

Take a break from the distractions of every day life, and join me at the Nordic Oceanfront Inn on the beautiful coast of Oregon to study baile (dance), palmas (clapping) and flamenco cante (singing) in a small group setting.  Eat, drink, chat, laugh, relax, dance, sing…  Have fun!

“THANK YOU LAURA! I love my Portland flamenco family, and I always know that we are going to have a great time together. Once again you organized a unique event which included friends, family, food and of course fabulous flamenco… in a fun and festive location! Bravo mi amiga!”  – Jackie Villegas-Maclin

Keep in mind this is a flamenco retreat.  We will be dancing and moving, clapping, and singing.  Join me if you want to retreat with flamenco and a fun group of people. (Don’t worry, there will be lounging around time too.)  ¡A disfrutar!

Laura, you made it happen! It was such a fun weekend. Loved the classes. The inn is so quaint, but it’s all of you fabulous ladies that made the whole thing such a great experience. Loved all of you and I too hope to meet everyone again soon,” – Bella Riley

The first beach trip happened in March of 2014.  We welcomed guests from as far north as Washington, as far east as Arizona.  It was a lovely weekend of flamenco and new friends.  Click here to see photos from the first retreat and click here to see photos from the second retreat and click here to see photos from the third retreat. I look forward to a winter retreat this January. We’ll be staying at The Nordic Oceanfront Inn, right on the ocean. You can expect the following in your beachfront room: – Ocean view – Double occupancy (two queen beds) – Kitchenette – Sitting area – Private bath

“It was a wonderful weekend with a great group of women I had just met. Our passion for Flamenco dancing and music brought us all together! I just love it! Thank you again Laura, and I look forward to our next workshop!” – Carol Carrillo

Who is it for?

You who wants to experience a weekend flamenco intensive with a small group at the coast.

“THANK YOU for putting this weekend together! Sure we all hit our walls today – but we pushed through and left with wonderful memories!” – Seana Yee

How much prior flamenco experience is necessary?

No experience is necessary. This flamenco retreat is geared toward beginning dancers. We will study bulerías at a beginning level. We’ll focus on the basics of flamenco through this fun fiesta style! I just got back from the Flamenco Tour to Jerez, and I’m ready to share some of the cute moves and concepts I learned during my time in Spain. If you are concerned about your level, please email us at info [at] portlandflamencoevents [dot] com, and we can discuss it.
