“IF I COULD TELL YOU WHAT IT MEANT, THERE WOULD BE NO POINT IN DANCING IT.” – ISADORA DUNCANT

Flamenco dancing is a thunderous, soulful, sometimes melancholy dance that originated in Andalusia, Southern Spain. Watching these dancers expose their emotion and passion through their strong and precise motions is not only beautiful but extremely moving. Flamenco combines pride, strength, pain, and passion through aggressive but purposeful movements with the dancers’ feet.

Modern Flamenco dance is a fusion of Moorish, Andalusian, Egyptian, Roman, Indian and Spanish folk style dance that the gypsies brought with them while fleeing their homelands in the fifteenth century and developed over hundreds of years. The art of Flamenco has developed over time, but it has never lost its core Gitano “Gypsy” foundation. Gitano was the term for the gypsies that entered Andalusia from Egypt and loosely applied to the fellow travelers that included beggars, criminals, and runaway slaves, among others. These groups chose to disappear by being absorbed by the Gypsy communities. The common thread that bound these misfits together was persecution, and the emotion of this can be seen in the song, dance, and music of Flamenco. During the early nineteenth century, Flamenco dance became more accessible to the public through festivals and shows performed at performance theaters called cafe castanets, the first of which was opened in Seville in 1842.
