About us

Escola Luthier de Música was founded in 1979 by guitarist Alícia Alcalay, a graduate from the Conservatori Superior Municipal de Música de Barcelona. In 2011 Ms. Alcalay and her son, tap dancer and choreographer, winner of the DansaCat 2010 Award Guillem Alonso, launched a dance program at the school.

The dance department has the aim to become a high quality dance center specialized in tap dance. For this reason, in 2012 we start our Professional Tap Program, an intensive training for intermediate or advanced tap dancers from all nationalities.

We teach ballet, jazz-dance, contemporary dance, body percussion, flamenco, urban dances, Irish dance, Baroque dance and Music Theory for dancers.

We also offer workshops, masterclasses and summer&winter intensives. We regularly invite guests teachers such as: Michelle Dorrance, Nicholas Young, Avalon Rathgeb, Chris Matallo, Susan Hebach, Josh Hilberman, Mark Mendonca, Mark Yonally, Jessie Sawyers, Heather Cornell, Thomas Wadelton, Andrew Nemr, Jason Janas (tap dance); Lynn Simonson, Teresa Pérez Ceccon, Colin Sinclair (jazz-dance); Denzil Bailey, Jordi Arnau (ballet); Nick Nguyen, Bruna Gondoni, Mª José Ruiz Mayordomo (Baroque dance).

We belong to the active and open tap dance family in Barcelona. And we enjoy sharing our passion for dance. Specially for tap dance.

You are welcome!
