This Flamenco Dance Lessons is based upon the Zapateado, as taught in Lesson 1, but now with with guitar accompaniment enabling you to dance this lesson por tango with your own flamenco guitarist.
The Zapateado is a rhythmic tapping combination of sounds made with the heel and toe of the shoe. The Zapateado is a typical flamenco form of tap derived from the Spanish word Zapato (shoe). The learned combination, going from slow to fast, has the following sequence: toe, heel, heel, toe, heel, heel, toe, heel.
Currently this type of flamenco footwork is integrated in most styles, both men and women, sometimes leaving the guitar in silence to emerge along with the other elements of accompaniment at the time of its greatest intensity or remate.
