¡Olé! Baila, Baila. Olé! Dance, Dance!

Happy International Flamenco Day! To celebrate, I’m sharing photos from a wonderful evening in Granada, Spain our friends provided to our family when we visited in 2013.

Srta. Guerrero began dancing when she was three. Her mother taught flamenco at Carmen de las Cuevas. Patricia Guerrero is one of the foremost flamenco dancers in Spain. I recommend you see her footwork in a video of her dancing, by searching for her name. Seeing her live was a transformative experience. She is the essence of real flamenco.
