Daniel de Córdoba Bailes Españoles Foundation
features dances in Classical, Escuela Bolera, and Flamenco Puro.
Flamenco is the product of a centuries-old
living-tradition from the Andalusian region of
Southern Spain. The roots of Flamenco dancing
go back even further, to India, the homeland
of gypsies who arrived in Spain about 500 years ago.
These gypsies journeyed through southern Asia,
Egypt, the Middle East, Central Europe, Southern
France, and then Spain.
In Spain, their music and singing mixed with the
Jewish and Arabic influences that abounded at
that time. Little by little, Flamenco developed,
mostly in the area surrounding the cities of Seville,
Jerez, and Cadiz. This nascent Flamenco was usually
performed in private, and almost never heard by
In 1842, Flamenco was performed publicly for the first
time at the Cafe Cantante Flamenco nightclub in
Seville. By the turn of the century, Flamenco was
performed only at fairs, fiestas, and tours.
Such events reached only a fraction of people who are
interested in this art form, so today, Flamenco has been taken to concert halls.
Daniel de Córdoba has performed to acclaim in Carnegie
Hall, Lincoln Center, Broadway as well as the Majestic Theatre, the Latino Cultural Center and the Dallas Museum of Art.
