Spanish classical dance is a beautiful yet complex type of dance that includes many sub-categories. One popular form is Flamenco, perhaps the most well-known of Spanish dances, which originates in the southern part of Spain, possibly with the Romani people in the 18th century.
In recent years, flamenco has become a popular dance around the world. Today, in the country of Spain and in many other countries you might come across a café cantanté which is filled with song and dance and performers bringing their traditional dance and music to the patrons. Flamenco has become more than just a performing art: as new generations discover this art form, it has also become a way to build community.
