So today’s article is going to be about Flamenco dancing in Madrid. First, I’ll take you through a bit of the history of the Flamenco itself, then I’ll follow up by sharing some cool places to go experience the Flamenco during your stay in Madrid! I hope you guys enjoy it! That being said, let’s get right into it!
So are you interested in experiencing some of the rich history and fiery passion of the Flamenco art during your stay in Madrid? Well, as it turns out, I’ve done the research on that for you too! There are 3 main ways for a Flamenco dance to be experienced; the tablao, the professional concert, and the theatrical performance. The tablao, as I mentioned earlier, is a type of bar in Spain that has their own performers and it is a great environment to experience the Flamenco dance. The professional concert is a type of show that mostly features one singer and one guitar player. Dance concerts will include more guitarists and singers, who take turns performing solos, some, “Nueva Flamenco,” concerts will contain more instruments as well. The theatrical performance is similar to a ballet in nature, where the Flamenco dancers will perform whole stories for you through their expressive artform. I figured I would find you guys a few cool options to experience the Flamenco, with at least one being in each category.
My first mention is going to be, “Corral de la Morería.” This is the oldest Flamenco location in Madrid! They have several different events going on almost daily, so you should definitely check them out! I’ll have links for all the locations I mention below. Another good way to experience the Flamenco in Madrid is to view it at, “Teatro Flamenco Madrid,” with their show, “Emociones.” This is one of those theatre performances I mentioned to you earlier and I would highly advise this choice be on your list if you’re a dance or Flamenco enthusiast. Have a packed schedule? “Cardamomo,” is your place. With four fantastic shows a day and also a lovely menu, you can fit this into any busy trip to experience the art of Flamenco. The last location I’d like to introduce to you guys is called, “Casa Patas.” Their live flamenco shows are filled with passion and are a wonderful way to experience the dance. If you’d like to combine a tour and flamenco show into your next trip, I’ve covered that in a previous article (Things to do in as a Foreign Exchange Student in Madrid) so go check it out!
