Sponsored by the National Institute of Flamenco, Festival Juvenil is the youth component of Festival Alburquerque. This new program is the premier national flamenco camp for experienced young flamenco dancers ages 10-15. Students will take exclusive Festival Juvenil classes together as part of a selective cohort of dancers, in addition to select Festival Flamenco workshops. Students will be surrounded by the vibrant energy of Festival Flamenco participants and over 40+ Spanish Guest Artists, as the camp is located on site with our full line up of Festival Flamenco workshops at the University of New Mexico. This program provides a bridge for teen and tween dancers who are ready for the next level of their flamenco training in a highly-focused, supportive, and supervised environment.
Students ages 10-15 with higher levels of experience (3+ years of Flamenco Kids Camp or equivalent technique experience at their studio) may apply to participate in Festival Juvenil, the youth component of Festival Flamenco Alburquerque. Please feel free to contact us regarding questions about student placement. We also offer our 2-week Flamenco Kids Camp for children ages 6-12, which is open to absolute beginners, new students, and children with beginning to intermediate level flamenco dance experience.
The camp concludes with a free afternoon performance on Saturday, June 22nd for friends and family at the National Hispanic Cultural Center, where students demonstrate all they have learned during the course of the Festival Juvenil.
