Private Flamenco dance lessons: What to choose ?
Flamenco experts believe that the traditional Spanish dance style originated in Andalusia, a region in southern Spain, in the late 18th century. The Romani people, who had migrated to Spain, are thought to have influenced the music, dance, and culture of flamenco. The dance style features intricate footwork, hand clapping, and body movements that express passion and intensity. Flamenco dancers are often accompanied by a guitarist and singer, who provide the musical rhythms and melodies that guide the performance.
Today, flamenco is a popular dance style enjoyed worldwide and is recognized as an essential part of Spanish cultural heritage. Over time, several different styles of flamenco have evolved, each with unique rhythms and characteristics.
