Dance the Flamenco
is a form of art which originally came from Andalusia in southern Spain. It comprises music, singing, hand clapping and dancing and it draws great influence from the Romani and Arabic cultures going back as far as the 9th century. Over time, flamenco has evolved from being performed in private gatherings into a professional, commercial pursuit, with the dancing involving much hand and footwork in a highly emotional and focussed display of expression. More than 50 different flamenco styles, or palos, have emerged dealing with themes as varied as religion and death, although the timing of the dance moves depends on the rhythm of the accompaniment.
