Description

Andalusia is the birthplace of Flamenco, making Jerez a fitting host for the world's leading Flamenco festival. Thousands of dance students gather each year for workshops and master classes on the full range of flamenco styles and skills such as flamenco compás and clapping and learning how to handle the bata de cola and other elements such as the shawl and the fan. It is a once in a lifetime chance to learn from the masters, which helps explain the fierce competition from around the world to claim one of the 1,000 student spots. For those who are not lucky enough to get one of the coveted student invitation, it is still worth making the journey to Jerez to witness the most famous bailaores of our time performing throughout the festival at the Teatro Villamarta.
