Escuela de Ritmo Flamenco (Flamenco Rhythm School) – a unique dance and musician’s mobile school, ( From Jerez Spain to Boise, ID and back) EDR was founded in the winter of 2012 by Luis de la Tota and Ishi. The multi-talented couple bring together the perfect mix of Flamenco’s culture from Spain to the USA. They teach the unteachable secret rhythms of the Spanish Gypsies of Santiago that have been passed down from generation to generation in Luis’ own family, and share what can only come straight from the heart of experience about dance and rhythm with all who encounter them be it on stage or in a class.
‘One of our goals is to build an academy of Gypsy and Flamenco Arts here in Boise ID where Master Flamenco Artists From Spain can have teaching/performing residencies. Students in the USA and around the globe can come and study dance guitar singing and percussion. We feel by choosing Boise Idaho as our base we will add to the diversity of the culture while preserving the roots of a timeless music and culture. For those that want more adventure for their lives, we give the opportunity to come visit Spain with us. This is an exclusive journey into the streets and caverns where the people of Andaluz dance and sing, where the cradle of flamenco still rocks gently as it has done for hundreds of years’~ Estefanía ‘La Ishi’, Boise, ID
‘Flamenco is more than an art form, it is a way of life, a connection to oneself and humanity. Flamenco creates lifetime of friendships, it builds confidence and allows the individual to find comfort with a group of individuals all striving to seek and strengthen their unique beings.’ ~ Luis de La Tota, Jerez, Spain
