The remaining options correspond to each of the eight Andalusian provinces. By pressing one of these on the map, you will go to a new menu which includes a video about the province and its capital, a map and a list of recommended establishments. The guitar music accompanying the images is the flamenco rhythm characteristic of each province.
GASTRONOMY.This section has a menu providing access to a video ( ) with an Introduction to Andalusian Gastronomy, or just go straight to the preparation of four typical dishes: Paella, Gazpacho, Potato Omelette and Sangría.
FLAMENCO. In this section the user can watch a video with an Introduction to Flamenco and its history or go directly to the practical classes showing three different styles of flamenco dancing: sevillanas, rumba and bulería. The method used is simple and clear: First, choose one of the three styles. Next, a new menu appears where you can choose to watch the complete Dance, go to an Introduction to the style or practise the different steps of each dance by making a series of Movements.
For Sevillanas, a new menu of movements offers the possibility to watch each of the four coplas making up this flamenco style separately (1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th) It is also possible to closely follow the obligatory steps of Sevillanas: Primer cuerpo, Segundo cuerpo and Estribillo for each part. This complete method allows you to quickly practise and learn how to dance sevillanas.
As the Rumba and Bulería, are free dances lending themselves to improvisation, the Movements, called Remates, provide the basic notions required to be able to dance fluently at any party or celebration.
