Carrying on a generations-old family tradition, Maria Del Espadín and her daughter, Tempestad, bring
decades of teaching & performing experience to their students.
Regardless of the constant commercialization
and modernization of Flamenco, Mama Flamenca and La Hija Flamenca (as affectionately called by their many students) strive
to preserve the authenticity of Flamenco and to present Flamenco to the public as the gypsies of Andalucia intended Flamenco
to be. To learn true Flamenco...not only as the music & dance that it is, but also as a way of life...this
Flamenco family invites you to come observe a class or try one out at no expense upon registering with the Academy. We invite
you to experience first-hand what it is that sets Del Espadín Flamenco & Spanish Dance Academy apart from all

Message from Tempestad:
First & foremost, I would like to thank all who supported
me in my return to the tablao since my car wreck last December. It was wonderful to see so many familiar faces and to
welcome new ones to the Houston Flamenco family. I will forever be grateful to all those who stuck by me through this
very trying & difficult time in my life. Your support, loyalty & encouragement for me to get back on my feet
meant the world to me!
Special thanks to my family...most importantly, Mama Flamenca!, because without Mama
none of this would be possible for not only me, but for so many of us who adore flamenco!...to all of our AMAZING students...it
makes me so proud to see you LIVE flamenco...to Lucia & Val for being our special guests at such a significant event,
& to all our wonderful aficionados & friends!
