Flamenco is characterized by fast, precise footwork where the dancer stamps his feet rapidly on the floor. Although the feet are used differently, the principle is similar to tap dancing, where the rhythms created by the feet become part of the music.

The techniques for striking the floor are unique to flamenco and are called "zapateado".

The principle dance notation (written form) worldwide is 'LABAN NOTATION'. This is used by choreographers for all styles. That is Ballet, Contempory, and in this case Flamenco. A data base for the information regarding basic Flamenco routines can be found in the archives of Spanish Flamenco Academies and the equivalent in Mexico, & U.S. This maybe quite difficult to obtain quickley. My suggestion would be to contact the nearest Flamenco school that has access to this information. The Spanish Embassy (in your national capital may be able to assist if you wish to contact a particular area in Spain (Savilla being the most prevalent regarding Flamenco). The Spanish are very proud of their Flamenco and will hopefully be able to assist regarding your enquiries.

Flamenco is a dance. It is not the same as a flamingo, which is a pink bird! It is a completely separate and unique dance genre which comes from the Andalusian area of Spain.

In Spain they do a dance called flamenco.

Yes, flamenco is traditionally a solo dance. Sometimes, several dancers will get up and dance during one piece of music, but they will generally "tag" each other (one sits down and the next stands up to take over) rather than dance at the same time. You will see flamenco danced in groups by amateur troupes, in choreographed theatre shows, and by entertainers in Spanish tourist tablaos. Flamenco is not a social dance so it is not danced with a partner. The Sevillanas is a popular Spanish partner dance, often used in flamenco performances but it is not actually flamenco.

flamenco, along with most dance styles is done to express culture or emotion.

Nope - a Flamenco - is a dance !... a Flamingo is the pink bird !
