What is the guitar for in flamenco?
The guitar is a major part in flamenco. It provides accompaniment for the dancer, and makes the dance interesting instead of just endless footwork and arm movements. It is possible to perform flamenco without a guitar, but the dance is just that much worse because of it, and using a CD is entirely non-traditional (and makes it sound really bad). The guitar is also a HUGE part of flamenco music; in fact, flamenco music mainly consists of just the guitar, the voice, and the cajon.

How do you perform a flamenco dance?
Flamenco is a dance performed to specific flamenco music which comes from the Andalusia region of Spain. It's not easy to describe how to perform flamenco in writing - most people who try to imitate the style will stamp their feet, but they stamp them in totally the wrong way. Flamenco dancers do stamp with flat feet occasionally, but they also use the toe and heel in multiple combinations. To dance flamenco, you need to hold a very upright posture. Arms are similar to ballet but with the elbows higher and further back.
