Deva Flamenco aims to encourage people to enjoy and appreciate flamenco music and dance.
We are available to perform Flamenco Fiestas, with opportunities to have a go at flamenco dancing,
for local groups and in residential homes.
Also, Christine gives presentations, illustrated with video clips, music and demonstration dances,
tracing the flamenco story in Andalucia to the modern day.
