Madrid, Spain – Flamenco

Picture 005

Hello again! Today will be about the Flamenco – a dance indigenous to Spain. Flamenco uses Spanish folk music and started in the 18th century. Though, the dance made a dramatic development in the 19th century. Flamenco uses different types of music, but now, in the modern world, they combine the professional touch as well as the theatrical touch. It is very fun to watch.

There were 3 dancers, a singer, and a guitarist. I noticed the different styles that the dancers danced in. The first dancer’s countenance seemed very poignant. She seemed almost angry. She danced beautifully – full of grace. She seemed to be letting her feelings out – the way she stamped her foot and clapped her hands.

The next dancer was also a girl. Her facial expressions and gestures were relaxed and graceful. Except, this wasn’t an angry type of grace, it was a light and delicate grace. She almost danced like a ballerina except with more force.

The third dancer’s dance was the most fierce. He was definitely forceful and angry. His face literally got red. He stomped and twirled and clapped so hard, I thought there would be an earthquake! I definitely suggest watching this dance. Feel free to watch a video online, too. Whenever I get the chance, I will try to post some more Flamenco pictures. Thanks, and don’t forget to comment!

    As you can see, I added the picture from the place we saw it. You can see the two other dancers on the left and the guitarist and singer on the right. Sorry – the dancers were moving so fast, it got quite blurry.
