Let's go to Barcelona,
This beautiful and cosmopolitan city full of history and life, incredible art and architecture, fresh markets, and unexpected experiences.
In the 1950's and 1960's Barcelona experienced a wave of immigration from Andalucía helping to spread the flamenco culture of southern Spain to this northern city. During this time many peñas (flamenco clubs) were established in the city. Our teacher, David Romero's, parents were a part of this, relocating to the north from Huelva in search of work. They settled in Barcelona and never left. You probably know of many of the famous flamencos who hail from this incredible city, Carmen Amaya, Miguel Poveda, Mayte Martín...
But back to David. I'd been admiring and wanting to study with him for several years and finally traveled to Barcelona to do so a couple of years ago.
He exceeded my expectations.
Learning with him was fun, I improved my technique, and I left with one of the cutest choreographies ever.
