Born in the caves of southern Spain, this traditional dance associated with gypsy culture has evolved into one of the country's most popular forms of entertainment.

With early influences from Greek and Roman, and later Indian, Moorish and Jewish cultures, this bold and elegant fusion is marked by passionate feet stomping, hand clapping and finger snapping to the sound of special guitar music, and often accompanied by singing — all of which you can learn from the comfort of your home.

Take an online class to perfect your footwork, discover new guitar chords, and immerse yourself into all things Flamenco with these digital resources.
