What are some characteristics of the Flamenco dance?
The flamenco is a Spanish dance that originated with the Andalusian Gypsies in southern Spain. It's a dance that expresses the dancer's emotion when he/she stomps his or her feet. When the dancer taps his feet lightly, using the toes or balls of the feet, it expresses the feeling of happiness. When the dancer stomps his or her feet loudly and hard with the heels, it expresses anger or unhappiness. When the women of the dance twirl their dresses around so it makes almost a circle around them, it either tries to make them look powerful or intimidating, or it shows the feeling of great pride and joy.
