Sevillanas: Una noche de baile

Authored by:

 Advanced Language and Culture spent the evening learning a typical Spanish dance of Andalucía (Southern Spain): Sevillanas. This dance is typical of the city Sevilla and involves two partners dancing various steps while using their hands and arm movements as a complement. A typical instrument used in this style of dance are Las Castañuelas, a percussion instrument that is attached to the hands and follows the movements and sounds of the feet while dancing. Our students had the opportunity to learn one of the various steps of the Sevillanas as well as try their hand at the castañuelas! This sure took us out of our comfort zone but we learned we have some incredible dancers among this crew. 

 

¡Olé!
