Prepared specially for TTD, enjoy a dramatic and passionate flamenco dance display by professional performers in full costume.
Flamenco is an individualistic, yet structured folk art from Andalucía, often improvised and spontaneous. The song, dance and guitar are blended together by the passionate rhythms of southern Spain. Spain’s famous poet and writer Fredrico Garcia Lorca, called flamenco one of the most gigantic inventions of the Spanish people.
Complex rhythmic patterns are created by a sophisticated footwork technique, so the flamenco dancer wears special shoes or boots with dozens of nails driven to the soles and heels. The ladies wear long costumes often with many frills and practice for hours their elegant arm and hand movements.
Suggested Attire: No sneakers please.
