Flamenco Louisville is an inclusive, participatory community of dancers, musicians, teachers and aficionados who wish to keep the Flamenco experience present in our lives though we live far from Spain. Through classes, performances and juergas (flamenco parties), we share our passion with our home community of Louisville, KY and communities throughout the region. We are committed to the practice and presentation of Flamenco Puro - the most authentic form of flamenco music and dance. The performers you will see tonight have dedicated themselves to developing their skills as flamenco artists through intense study and practice including travel to Spain and ongoing collaborations with excellent fellow-artists here in the US.
Flamenco is a system of singing, music and dance with its roots in the diverse cultures of Moorish-ruled Al-Andalus (the Iberian peninsula, what is now known as Spain and Portugal). The many flamenco song forms or “palos” were developed and preserved in the Gitano families and communities of Southern Spain – Andalucia – who lived on the fringes of society. It is the art form of an oppressed people and in that respect bears a similarity to the Blues of the American South. It is something that, in its purest form, takes place within the family or an intimate community. Only in the last two hundred years has it coalesced into a theatrical form to be performed on stages in café settings and later in theaters. The many flamenco palos are organized around a recognized structure that allows musicians, singers and dancers to improvise. In that way, it is similar to Jazz
