Born in Medieval Andalucía, Southern Spain in the Middle Ages, when Europeans, Arabs, Jews, Gypsies and Africans co-existed in a Golden Age of art and learning, this art form has fascinated writers, poets, composers, painters, sculptors, choreographers and audiences for centuries and developed into one of the most respected and loved music and dance forms, evolving to the highest level of technique and artistic expression. Flamenco’s earthy power, spellbinding athleticism, subtle nuances and explosive energy make it at once sensual and spiritual, raw and refined and an unforgettable theatrical experience.
