Hi. I am Rocío, flamenco dancer and Spanish dance. Degree in dance teacher from the School of Dance of Caracolillo in Triana. . I danced in the Ballet City of Seville, Flamenco Biennial, stages of France and England. I teach in Seville and Vejer, and I'm still training at the prestigious Flamenco School of Juan Polvillo in the Barrio de la Macarena. In Triana where I live, I can accompany my visitors to a route through the world of bullfighting and flamenco, if they ask me to.
I live between Seville and Vejer de la Frontera (Cádiz), because I married a vejeriego, José who may be able to accompany us, an expert guide in the Arab, Jewish and Christian world of Seville and Morocco. Their last names are Sephardic and Moriscos; an Andalusian of blood Bere Bere, who tells us how flamenco begins in the mixture of gypsies with Arabs and Jews.

What to Expect
As an expert flamenco dancer, born in Triana, I will take you to one of the private flamenco dance studios (no show for tourists); where to the sound of traditional music, I will teach you the master steps of flamenco dance. Depending on availability, we will go to Sol Street (center of Seville) or Fabies Street (Triana).
First how to play the palms to the beat of the dance, then some light steps, easy and simple, of our flamenco dances. We will dance some sevillanas and other modalities such as bulerias or rumba.
During the experience it is possible, if is in Sevilla, to be accompanied by my partner José; knowledgeable expert of flamenco from its Arab and Jewish roots. He will tell you how the history of Flamenco began, in the union of these two cultures with the gypsy. While they sang their sorrows after their expulsion and later shelter in the caves (cavas) of the suburbs of Triana.
For the dance I will give you flowers and gypsy shawls; that will allow you to be dancers for a day, and take some photos or record a video. If you want you can buy them at the end.
