Spanish Culture, Tradition And Why Cave and Tablao Flamenco Is Important
Tablao or table flamenco dancing has its etymological roots in the word “table” “tableau” “tavolo,” which all have similar meanings whether we’re speaking in English, French, or Italian. Here, flamenco dancers would move about the board or table-top, as flamenco dancing occurs on top of a table, and not always on the solid floor. Exciting, right?!

The Spanish have immense capabilities when it comes to moving those hips and twirling those hands, its most definitely an unparalleled experience.
