Flamenco dance is very expressive and each part of the body represents a very important part which must move in a coordinated way. All of this can be seen every night at the Tablao Flamenco Albayzín.
But flamenco is not just about technique, there is an ingredient that only authentic dancers and singers understand, the soul, the most difficult thing to learn. Rhythm and harmony are the most important things in flamenco, as each “palo” (style) has its own rhythm and its own harmony. There are 50 different flamenco “palos” and each one of them, depending on its harmony, makes it danceable and is interpreted in a different way.
