Flamenco dance: A history
Before checking some Spanish themed party ideas, let’s immerse ourselves in the history of this traditional art form. Flamenco dance history is the resulting of a mixture of cultures. This is not surprising, as we know from history that many different civilizations inhabited Andalucia. So we know that the roots of Flamenco are a mixture of Phoenician, Greek, Carthaginian, Arab, Roman, Gypsy and, of course, Spanish cultures.
Although Flamenco is thought to be an ancient art, it started to be recognised as a Spanish Folk Dancing style in the 18th century. During this period, Jerez, Cadiz and Seville were the locations where flamenco dancers and guitarists began to proliferate. Therefore, it is easy to understand why the most popular Flamenco festivals are held in these Andalusian cities. As aforementioned, the Seville April Fair is the most famous one among these festivities, although all of them attract thousands of national and international visitors year after year.
These traditional Flamenco fairs are some of the events that have contributed to the spread of Spanish dance and music all around the world. Thanks to them, Flamenco has become an international benchmark and classic entertainment from Spain including rumba catalana groups and other music styles such as Zarzuela are requested by event organisers hosting corporate events all around the world.

Although Flamenco is the best known Spanish dance style and music, there are many other musical styles to be explored.

Rumba Catalana origins are in the north-eastern coast of Spain, specifically in Catalonia (thus the name). This musical genre is very popular within the Spanish borders, but a little less known by international audiences. Its rhythms are derived from flamenco, but it’s a genre that also has influences from Cuban music and rock and roll. Our rumba catalane group can be a great alternative to more classic forms of entertainment from Spain, but it could be as well a culturally enriching experience. Award ceremonies attendees and private parties’ guests are guaranteed to fully enjoy this experience.
