A weekend of flamenco in Lincoln City, Oregon from 6pm Friday to 3pm Sunday – Only 4 spots left!

Fall Flamenco Retreat at the Oregon Coast

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 Historic Anchor 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!
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.  ¡A disfrutar!

The History:

A couple of years ago I was in Lincoln City performing with Nat, Lamiae, Faly, José, and my friend Julie.  The show was at the community center, and we were given the dance studio to prep before-hand.  “What a beautiful studio!”  that’s what Julie and I said to each other when we saw it, and we fantasized about getting to have classes there.   That night we stayed in the lodge at the Historic Anchor Inn.  Immediately we fell in love with the place, its quaint rooms, its charming common areas.  Each room was distinct with its own little sitting area and artwork.  One room even had a piano in it!  I wished we could stay longer…  In the morning we went down to the restaurant for breakfast.  By then I had already started dreaming.  Dreaming about a flamenco beach trip of course.

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 last retreat.  I’m looking forward to doing this again in October.   ¡Vamonos!
