The Andalusian culture would be incomplete without its world famous flamenco dance. In February 2017, a group of 16 Slovakian dancers and actors came to Seville for an extensive practical training to master all the basics of this dance. The trainees stayed for two weeks and completed their practice at a professional dance conservatory with a show on the last day.
During their training, they learnt to:
- Recognise Spanish dance, flamenco dance, classical dance and contemporary dance
- Recite flamenco and its history
- Organise a flamenco show
- Executing marketing skills
The trainees also had the opportunity to extensively get to know Seville during a bike tour and a walking tour, to learn the basics of Spanish during their Spanish classes, to enjoy the local food during tapas night and to discover the city of Cadiz.
All the trainees received great evaluations from their dance instructor and left the city with new impression and an extra dose of creativity. Hopefully they can use their new dance steps in Slovakia!
