Fascinante Flamenco - The Sevillanas is a Spanish folk dance from the Seville region. Originally danced by courting couples, these days it's danced by people of all ages and genders, usually in pairs, but often in groups. A beautiful and versatile dance as the set choreography can be performed in different styles and with various accessories, especially castanets.
