About Ambiente Flamenco
Our website was originally created to showcase some of the events and workshops run by our Flamenco group, but over time we came to want to share our passion for the world of Flamenco by using Ambiente Flamenco as an online resource with news and information about this amazing art form. We hope you find it useful!
Flamenco dancer and fan of all things related to it... including frills!
After working and studying Flamenco in Spain for many years, Ambar returned to the UK where she spent 5 years performing before deciding to give her poor feet a break and concentrate on designing and sewing the fabulous costumes she loves. She started sewing her own costumes because she found it almost impossible to get reasonably priced, good quality Flamenco dancewear anywhere outside of Spain and, after being asked "where did you get that gorgeous skirt?" by fellow dancers more than a few times, she realised that she could help other Flamenco dancers throughout the world get their dream Flamenco outfit!
Over the last few years she has also taught herself the main web programming languages and enjoys designing and updating the website to keep it up to date and looking great!
Our IT manager and technical genius
Miquel is the brains behind the website, the architect of company IT infrastructure, and all other such useful techy stuff. He also has a background in fashion so often chips in with ideas about how to make our designs just right. Just don't ask him to dance, Flamenco or otherwise!
