flamenco

Often accompanied by strident guitar brushstrokes, rhythmic hand-clapping and singing, flamenco, a gypsy dance from the south of Spain, is characterized by a high-arched back and rhythmic footwork. The dancers, who should be completely masculine if men and ultrafeminine if female, should epitomize poise, pride and controlled sensuality.
