Flamenco inspired YOGANCE?Most,if not all dance comes from a form of oppression;political-cultural-humane desire to be heard.Great art is created through a need to be heard,to release,express.Thus, you don’t think through dance,you FEEL through dance!FLAMENCO,1st mentioned in literature in 1774.Originated in Spanish regions(Andalućia, Extremadura, Murcia). includes:cante (singing),toque (guitar playing),baile(dance), jaleo (vocalizations and palmas(hand clapping),pitos (finger snapping)-Wikipedia.” When the gypsies arrived in Andalućia from India in 1425 they brought w/them many song/dance styles w/strong Indian connections.Andalucía was under Arab rule,along w/the Jews &the moors,the gypsies were persecuted by the Catholic monarchs & the inquisition.The moors were forced to convert to Christianity.Failure to do so resulted in expulsion from Spain.The Jews suffered a similar fate.The gypsies were subjected to some of the worst atrocities in an attempt to exterminate them as a race. Many laws were passed by various monarchs forbidding them anything to do with their identity.”-andalucia.com.The Jews,Moors & gypsies fled to mountainous areas that were to dangerous to be pursued.They lived in harmony & the fusion of their cultures created Flamenco as we know it today.In the 18th century they came out of hiding. Flamenco was looked as not worthy for the rich but the artist were magnetized by the passion of sound/dance.There were stories of these wild, crazy, erotic people performing strange dance & song underground.Eventually the rich wanted in on the fun, so they hired the dancers to entertain them along with the prostitutes & alcohol at private parties.Same story,different dance.The oppressed,poor & ethnic,create beauty through struggle only to be “raped” by the people that originally condemned them. #flamenco #art #create #expressyourself #onelove #YOGANCE LEGGINGS @arthleticwear Eva YerbaBuena #YOGANCE #MovementArtist #movefree #explore #inspire #history #grace #kindness #yogaeverydamnday #yoga #yogadance #yogafordancers #dance #dancer #BeYOUtiful #fitwomen #spanish #love
