Flamenco Dancing in London. Flamenco Team-building. A Flamenco show... how are these relevant in the Corporate world in London and the UK?
A well-known scene - an announcement from senior management that a team building or team bonding day has been arranged. All employees are expected to absail down cliffs or build bridges over mud swamps while firing paintballs through the rain.... Strangely, the announcement is not always received with the enthusiasm it merits....
Well - how about something really different as an ice-breaker or team building event - "Strictly Come Flamenco" - a workshop in Flamenco Dance! Then an authentic Flamenco Show with flamenco dancers, guitarists and singers!
All businesses today - large or small, within traditional industrial or fast-moving modern environments - rely on the flexibility of the workforce they employ. Key skills are adaptability, flexibility, forward thinking and enthusiasm, and all individuals are expected to function as part of constantly evolving teams. Mergers and acquisitions bring together people with different backgrounds, cultures and work ethics - even different languages - and business success relies on everyone working well together.
One key to the success of any team building, team bonding or ice-breaking event is to take individuals away from their comfort zone but within a non-threatening environment where everyone can participate on an equal footing. Flamenco Dance workshops do just that. From Receptionist to Managing Director, Head of Finance to Accounts Clerk, everyone learns a new skill together.
Flamenco Team building workshops for corporate clients, taken by Sandra La Espuelita, are first and foremost great fun. They take total beginners and show them the basics of style, movement and rhythm, exploring emotional expression within flamenco dance and using support from within the group to expand the confidence and ability of individuals. Flamenco is suitable for all ages and sizes, men and women, and can be taught in groups as small as 5 or 6 up to 50 or more. You do not need to have the body of a ballerina or the speed of a sprinter - just an open mind and a sense of fun! You can even end the day with a full professional flamenco show as corporate entertainment.
Sandra La Espuelita comes from a professional Human Resources background, having worked as European Head of HR for Thomson Financial (now Thomson-Reuters, the world's largest provider of real-time information) in the City of London UK, before choosing a life-style change in 2001 to make Flamenco dance her full-time career. This gives her a truly unique insight into both flamenco and corporate worlds, and in 2005 she featured in the BBC's "Strictly Come Dancing" teaching Darren Gough flamenco dance!
