Flamenco is a living art form, originating in the south of Spain. Characterized by driving rhythms and haunting melodies, it is a passionate expression of life involving intricate communication between four main components: Song, Dance, Guitar, and Rhythm.
It is common in North America to mistake flamenco for ballroom dance, latin dance, or folk dance. Flamenco dance is generally performed as a solo, often with accompaniment of guitar, singing and/or rhythmic clapping. There are many variations on this format. Dancers and singers also take on the role of clapping rhythmic accompaniment when not dancing. Flamenco is commonly performed on a stage for the public or at a party with other flamenco aficionados.
