Spanish Flamenco: Hear the beat and stamp your feet. Private Dance Workshop
Flamenco is much more than just a dance, it’s a way of life and an icon of Spanish culture. The dance has been with us for over two thousand years, a fusion of Jewish, Arab and Gypsy cultures, originating in the region between Sevilla and Cadiz, prosecuted in Spain throughout history. It is a mixture of – el canto (singing), el toque (guitar playing) and el baile (dance). Visitors who only catch a glimpse of flamenco during their holiday, might think that it is all about bombastic music, kicking the floor and loud outbreaks, however, if you look deeper, you will see that flamenco is a gracious, elegant and passionate form of expression, steeped in history, mysterious and emotional. The way to find out is to try flamenco dancing; it will captivate you with its passion, emotion and energy. Learn basic steps and get to know the cultural significance of the Spanish cultural heritage protected under UNESCO and understand the flame of flamenco. Traditional costume is included!
