Group size
Up to 20 people

Join a Spanish Tour Director and learn about the history and artistry behind flamenco dancing

Flamenco, the famous theatrical dance style that originated in the Andalusia region of Spain, is a very deep art form full of complex rhythms, lyrics, and hidden messages. With this live experience, you’ll join María from her home in Madrid to learn all about the artistry and history of flamenco. She’ll explain the origins of the flamenco style, and help you appreciate the cultural influences and traditions that inform the dance. She’ll also teach you how to do the palmas, the handclapping that accompanies the flamenco musicians and helps punctuate the song and dance. Get your castanets ready—by the end of this lesson you’ll learn everything you need to know about flamenco.
