Duende - Flamenco Dance School
"Duende" – City center for the art of Flamenco.
The center offers a variety of classes, workshops, lectures and master classes throughout the year.
Sharon Saguy came back to Israel after 14 years in which she danced and created with the world's best artists and established the Centre for the Art of Flamenco "Duende", with the Division of Arts of the Jerusalem Municipality.
"Duende" is one of the best Flamenco schools in the country.
The students learn from the best dancers and musicians in the field. The panel of dancers and musicians include Sasson Levy – one of the best Kajon percussionists.
Sharon Saguy is the Artistic Director – dancer and choreographer who brings with her a rich and varied professional experience after performing in Israel, Spain and around the world.
In "Duende" we believe that Flamenco is a way of life, not just a dance or music lesson. In order to understand the essence of Flamenco you need to explore the whole magical world of Flamenco – that is why we built the Duende conservatory – a home for all Flamenco lovers.
"Duende" is a leading Flamenco center for years. People who are drawn to the world of Flamenco come from all over the country to study and have become professional dancers and musicians.
The center provides its students with the very best Flamenco training in music, dance and singing suitable for all levels and ages.
Sharon Saguy can be invited to teach Master Classes and give lectures and performances throughout the country.
