Deva Flamenco is a community group that aims to bring an appreciation of flamenco dance and music to Chester and the surrounding area. Formed in 1997 by Christine Stockton, we offer weekly dance classes for both beginners and improvers, plus informal shows and performances and “have-a go” workshops Our usual teacher is Nia Lowe. We also have occasional classes with the professional flamenco dancer, Maria Del Mar “Chachi”, who visits us from Málaga. Other visiting dance teachers have given us a wide range of flamenco and Gypsy choreographies. We have performed at festivals, Spanish restaurants, social and community centres and have led flamenco fun hen parties! Our aim is to share our love of this passionate Gypsy dance and music. Christine also gives talks on the Story of Flamenco, demonstrating the historic development of the dance in Andalucia, Southern Spain.
