It is a pleasure to introduce you and guide you through our Flamenco Dance Museum and the experiences that it offers you.
This museum began with the idea of being an open meeting space for all flamenco lovers and for those eager to learn about, or learn more about, the art of flamenco. Flamenco was born from a mixture of cultures that have existed in, and still unite, Andalusia. To symbolize this cultural fusion, we built a glass case into the foundation of our museum with a Bible, Talmud, Torah, Quran, Vedas, and Tripitaka, along with a list of the more than three hundred people that collaborated on the project. We also added an olive branch to the case to represent the idea that our museum is a place of peace and understanding.
The museum is explained in a playful and enjoyable style in six different languages. In our interactive museum, one of several exhibits, you will find large screens that explain the “palos,” or styles, that best represent the flamenco dance, its origins, and its development. Various videos will tell you the names of the “giros,” or turns, and the ideals of the dance. You will also see videos of some of the greatest artists to further your understanding of flamenco. We will show you and explain the different costumes, castanets, and photographs. Who uses these items? Which dances are performed with them? Additionally, with Manolo Sanlúcar´s music, you will see dances choreographed specifically for the museum, and even more specifically, for you.
We await your visit so that you can learn about and enjoy the art of flamenco dance. On our website, our virtual home, you can see a small part of our activities. However, we are certain that by visiting the museum your experience will be unique and you will find yourself at home, as our home is yours as well.
