Transcript of "Spain Is Not Only Flamenco."

  1. 1. Traditional Spanish Dances Jota Aragonesa: This typical dance hails from the north of Spain, namely Aragón, and features a fast tempo as couples dance with their hands raised high above their heads playing castanets. Moorish influences are probable, as it is loosely attributed to a Moorish poet who was kicked out of Valencia during the 12th century. Sardana: Several couples join hands and dance in a closed circle in this traditional dance from Catalonia. Muñeira: Danced in twos or alone along to the music of bagpipes, this traditional "Miller's Dance" is typical throughout Galicia and Asturias. Zambra: The zambra began as a Moorish dance, but with monarchs Fernando and Isabel's reconquista of Spain, the Moors were able to conserve the dance by adapting it to Spanish dance customs. Bolero: One of the oldest and most traditional dances of the history of Spanish dance, the bolero is a quick Spanish dance boasting sudden pauses and sharp turns. Fandango: At one point the most famous dance of Spain, the fandango is a lively, happy Spanish danced in two's. Paso doble: A quick one-step Spanish dance. Flamenco: A passionate dance hailing from gypsies, flamenco is internationally famous. Learn more! Sevillana: Lively and joyous dance typical of Seville and reminiscent of flamenco that features four distinct parts.
