Flamenco del Sol

Flamenco del Sol

Academia Flamenco del Sol was founded overseas in 1993 and became established in Central Florida in 1999 when Director Tammy Weber de Millar, a graduate of Lake Mary High School and University of Central Florida moved back to the U.S. from South America.  Flamenco del Sol is known for a pure focus on flamenco arts with all bi-lingual classes.  The students are taught theory as well as flamenco dance and theatrical arts.  The professional company has captivated audiences nightly at Central Florida theme parks for two decades and many other fine venues throughout the U.S. and Caribbean. The academy and professional companies have delighted audiences and critics alike with a flurry of productions including critically lauded performances at the Orlando Fringe Festival.  Flamenco del Sol productions include “Romeo y Julieta” featuring the direction, choreography and dance of Madrid-based Carlos Rodriguez Gonzalez, artistic director of Spain’s Got Talent,  “Carmen”–which played for a full two years in numerous theaters, “Corazon Flamenco” featuring international flamenco star, Angel Rojas, “El Amor Brujo”, “Camino Flamenco”, award-winning “Misa Flamenca”, as well as “Pasion Flamenca”.  The academy sponsors master classes and workshops several times each year with Spain’s most elite flamenco dancers right here at the Seminole County location.

Flamenco del Sol’s roots in education go even deeper. Director Tammy Weber de Millar discovered Flamenco as her life path during a UCF study abroad trip in 1984. She went on to pursue a Master of Science in Spanish Education and inaugurated Academia Flamenco del Sol first in South America in 1993, then in the U.S. in 1999.  She has dedicated her career to teaching Flamenco and well as Spanish language Pre-K through college level. Her professional career also includes over fifteen years as a publisher, conceptualizing and developing World Language materials for K-16 markets along with creating and delivering professional development programming for World Language teachers and professors.

Program description

Immerse your students in a full week of authentic flamenco instruction where your students will experience all the history (5 continents worth), color and intricacies of flamenco dance in a fun, bi-lingual, interactive environment.  They will start with the heartbeat of flamenco–the ‘compas’–the beat that breathes life into the dance and build that dance with unique posture, powerful footwork, graceful arms and beautiful expression that will take their artistic experience and communication to a whole new level.
