Sevillanas from tablao de Pura Esencia Flamenco Sevilla
The flamenco dance of Seville that has conquered everyone, from the neighborhood of Triana.
From Pura Esencia Flamenco, in the Triana neighborhood in Seville, we wanted to bring you a moment of our daily performance. This time we show you a video of the dance by Sevillanas at a party end where our dancers of Pura Esencia Flamenco, Natalia Blanco and Gabriel Aragú, are thrown to the tablao to the beat of the guitar of Carlos Ayala and the imposing voice of Ana Fernández.
This choreography is pure beauty and those who know this dance well know what we are talking about.
Although it is not a “palo” of the most authentic flamenco, we can say that Sevillian is the best known style of all since any Andalusian who cares, must go out to dance Sevillian at any time of our celebrations and parties. It is the main dance of the Seville Fair and the rest of the fairs and festivals of our region.
In addition to other festivals as renowned as the pilgrimage of the Rocío, or of which this dance acquires greater eloquence for its lyrics referring to devotion to the Virgin Mary. Sevillian sprays are easy to distinguish as they are usually accompanied by the touch of the drum and flute.
Although any time is good to dance some Sevillian ones, in the same courtyard of the house, for example!
Their dance is simple to remember in their steps and turns, and if not, you will always find a local character to help you. But remember, it has four parts and you have to finish them all.
La Sevillana is an affair that takes place in four stages. They are named after them; la primera, la segunda, la tercera and la cuarta.
La Sevillana as a traditional dance with a varied origin, takes the form of dances more native to Castile such as the Seguidillas, as early as the fifteenth century. With the repopulation after the reconquest, it merges
These four parts each have their own meaning within the Seville dance:
The First: it is the meeting of the couple. Simulate a pass in which both are discovered and therefore you exit a distance where there is no friction between the dancers. You start something sideways, to end both front to face.
The Second: We are already face to face and the passes are closer and come to cross to return to the same place. It suggests their end that the couple agree that they are both already one at the ball.
The Third: it’s the culmination of the whole set. The joint taconeo appears and it is always him, more static, who is accompanied by her who dominates the dance.
The Fourth: it’s an explosion of joy of laps and passes until we reach the end of the dance. Sometimes it’s hard to take all the steps and turns, so it’s no wonder there are certain licenses for each couple.
What the dance really looks like for Sevillians is with the flamenco costume that women usually wear at the celebrations of the festivities, although you can dance in any way, which always looks. It’s the best way to get to know each other and feel our way of living
