“Querida María, today was an absolute triumph! The standard of flamenco was breathtaking. I will be dreaming of flamenco tonight! However, your duo provided more than this. Ester has the ability to teach and engage very young children, some with special needs. The results were memorable and the memories for children and staff are priceless. ¡Olé! Muchísimas gracias”.

” Just to say thank you for an amazing ‘workshop’ and celebration of the Spanish curriculum link. The presenters, lady and guy was wonderful. The presenters had the kids attention throughout the presentation. The assembly part was well organised and suited the interest of the kids.
“All of us in the year 4 team, including the children, just wanted to say a massive thank you to Canela Fina involved in organising and running the Spanish workshop on Friday. All the children had a fantastic day and were really immersed in the activities. One boy in my class said, “It has been the best day ever!
The workshop helped the children gain an insight into Spanish culture, which provided a fun and meaningful context for pupils to realize the benefits of learning a new language. Muchas gracias!”
Natasha Craston – Teacher Chesterton Primary School
“Presentation was excellent. It was perfect for yr.4. It was well organized, simple and clear. It made children get interested in the subject very quickly.
Videos were well selected. Children could see and compare flamenco dancing and singing from the past and from these days.
Accessories were very adequate for all children. All boys and girls had a nice and appropriate accessory to wear during their practice. Boys enjoyed wearing the ‘fajin’ and girls were also excited about wearing a flower on their heads.
Professionals: Great dancer, guitarist and percussionist, amazing approach to children, fantastic use of both languages during workshop.”
