Flamenco dance classes
Flamenco is the best-known Spanish musical style on the whole world and has even been declared Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. Its long history (its origin dates back to the end of the 18th century), the influence of the many cultures that passed through Andalucía and the fact that it spread to other parts of Spain means that this musical and dance style has many variants, also known as “palos”.
