The History of Sevillanas

The Sevillanas is a typical folk music and dance that, contrary to what the name may lead you to believe, did not originate in Seville, Spain. Beginning more than 500 years ago as fusion of Castilian folk music and Flamenco, Sevillanas has evolved to become a rich and historic part of Spanish culture and tradition, and a symbol of Seville, the capital of Andalusia in the south of Spain.

 

The dance has become popular due to the annual Seville Fair, where several stages are dedicated todaily Sevillanas dance shows. Furthermore, fair spectators will often dance Sevillanas and party until the early hours of the morning.

The dance is perfect for all ages and abilities, so there’s no excuse not to move your feet along to the beat! Furthermore, because Sevillanas is a bit more downbeat, it can also be a great compliment to other, heart pumping dance lessons offered by Madrid Dance Schools! But don’t let the music fool you, the dance steps can be quite intricate at times, so you will still need to concentrate to perfect them!
