Students new to flamenco are invited to attend! Master classes are opportunities for new students to learn about the cultural roots and rhythmic structures of flamenco and for more experienced students to explore flamenco from new perspectives with a master guide! Both of the following classes offer rich insights and unique perspectives that you will not find anywhere else!  


"Once I really experienced the connection between the two art forms of flamenco and bullfighting, I could make better artistic choices. I love bringing the bull into my dance for drama, for more authentic style, and for the expressive possibilities."        – Adair Landborn –

Flamenco and Bullfighting 

Explore the movement skills and imperatives of Spanish bullfighting, taking turns being the matador and the bull, and discover parallels in the movement vocabulary and nuances of the flamenco dance style. This class is fun, informative, and thought-provoking. It will both enrich your appreciation of the flamenco arts and inform your artistic choices for years to come. 

Take a two-hour trip into the Spanish culture and deepen your knowledge of the flamenco dance style. 


Flamenco Dance Notation 

When you learn how to write flamenco dance movements down on paper, your brain and body integrate this new knowledge more effectively than if you were to watch the same dance steps on video.

Learning how to notate flamenco dance steps will help you better understand the rhythm and structures of flamenco dance. The mysteries of the flamenco compás become clear and visible through the process of notating. This portable, user-friendly system is adapted from Laban's internationally-recognized system of dance notation. Adair has taught her unique notation method at the University of Cadíz, Spain, the Escuela Nacional de la Danza in Mexico City, and at the Flamenco Festival Internacional in Albuquerque.

A great tool for learning, collecting and sharing your favorite dance steps and choreographed dances.

Dr. Adair Landborn is one of the finest people and one of the best teachers with whom I have had the privilege to work. Her methods encourage and enhance the learning experience. Whether teaching history, dance or participating in community groups and sharing her vast knowledge, it is apparent that she is a dedicated professional. She carries a bright light within and gives of herself freely. She works with energy and great commitment. I am so proud to know her and to have had her for my teacher and co-worker at the Taos Academy of Dance Arts. ¡TaDa! Adair Landborn is amazing!
