*About Flamenco Dance*

Flamenco dance is a highly-expressive, Spanish dance form. The flamenco is
a solo dance characterized by hand clapping, percussive footwork, and
intricate hand, arm and body movements. Flamenco dancers spend a great deal
of time practicing and perfecting the often difficult dance. Although there
is no single flamenco dance, dancers must follow a strict framework of
rhythmic patterns. The steps a dancer performs are dependent on the
traditions of the song being played. Perhaps the greatest joy of flamenco
dancing is watching the personal expressions and emotions of the dancer,
which change many times during a single performance. Flamenco dancers are
serious and passionate. Typical of flamenco dance, a dancer will often
stand motionless and free of expression for the first few moments of a
song. As he or she begins to feel the music, the dancer might begin a
steady beat of loud hand clapping. Then, as emotion builds, the dancer will
begin a passionate dance. The dancing often involves fierce stomping,
sometimes made louder with percussion attachments on the shoes, and
graceful arm movements.
