Ida Y Vuelta Flamenco

'Ida Y Vuelta' translates to 'Round Trip" in Spanish and is the name of this phenomenal Flamenco dance troupe! Based in Dallas this group pulls from world class performers and musicians.

Flamenco is a form of Spanish folk music and dance from the region of Andalusia in southern Spain. It includes cante (singing), toque (guitar playing), baile (dance) and palmas (handclaps).

The genre grew out of Andalusian and Romani music and dance styles. Flamenco is often associated with the Romani people of Spain (Gitanos) and a number of famous flamenco artists are of this ethnicity. The Flamenco genre underwent a dramatic development in the late 19th century. In recent years flamenco has become popular all over the world and is taught in many countries: in Japan there are more academies than there are in Spain. In 2010 UNESCO declared flamenco one of the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.
