Daily April post for the A-Z Blogging Challenge. Today is the letter U. My theme is Flamenco.
U is For Ugly
There are moments during a Flamenco dance when intense emotion can make even the most beautiful face, Ugly. Ugly is not a kind word but it is the opposite of pretty and a Flamenco dance expression is rarely pretty. The raw emotion that has been stored inside a dancer now comes to life in her facial expression, hands and head movement. A good Flamenco dancer is long remembered after her performance.
I am not referring to the dances that have roots in folk dances but this is meant for pure Flamenco.
Beginning dancers strive for that Flamenco look. If they don't feel the music, the look on their face betrays them. My advice to beginners, "It takes a long, long time. Only took me 20 years. Be patient, it will come." :)
The Farruquito family has always been a favorite of mine. Pure Flamenco.
