The Art of Flamenco
A Way of Life
A dance of passion and grace, the art of flamenco lies in the close relationship between song, music and dance. Born of the gypsies of Andalucia and coloured by its roots in the Orient, flamenco has a universal appeal – no doubt due to its unique ability to touch us in a profound way. To dance flamenco is to cultivate one’s own completeness. Flamenco develops the body – through movement, the mind – by mastering rhythms, and the soul – via the expression of emotions. It brings us in touch with ourselves, and others, and if you open yourself to its power and its charm, it can become a way of life.
Flamenco was born of the first sob and the first kiss.
- Federico Garcia Lorca
(Spanish poet and playwright)
