Why a Spanish and flamenco school?

Back in 1984 ...

a then young couple, Carmen and Nacho started what was to be the project of our lives, first a Spanish school for foreigners, the first one in Granada, but very soon also a flamenco center.

Granada, Sacromonte and Albaicin

Grenada and more specifically the sacromonte and Albaicín neighborhoods, are the heart and cradle of flamenco. The Carmen de las Cuevas School is located right between of the two neighborhoods and was steeped in this art from the beginning.

Spanish and Flamenco

Our enthusiasm and that of the team of people we surround ourselves with, made the school grow in both areas: Spanish and Flamenco.


At Spanish we have grown in offer y specialization, our teaching team is highly motivated and highly solvent. We are founding members of the main industry associations such as Spanish in Andalusia y FEDELE. Since 2003 we have easily passed the demanding quality inspections, thus becoming one of the first Accredited Centers of the Cervantes Institute.

Student profile Carmen de las Cuevas School


With regards to Flamenco, we have built a reputation for ourselves thanks to the excellence of the courses we offer and the teachers and artists who teach them. El Carmen de las Cuevas is a meeting place for artists and flamenco fans. We teach courses in different disciplines: dance, guitar, singing, compás... and all levels, including professional.

This is how we have managed to build what is today probably the first and only school in the world that offers an extensive quality program of both the Spanish language and flamenco art.

After so many years in the fray, we continue to innovate, now with online and hybrid classes. We like to move forward with the new times and transform challenges into opportunities.

Is it possible to combine Spanish and Flamenco?

Most of our courses are compatible in schedules, since in general the Spanish courses are in the morning and the flamenco courses are in the afternoon. Tell us your preferences and we will guide you.
