Flamenco Museum

Flamenco Museum

The Flamenco Museum (Museo del Baile Flamenco) is one of the most visited museums in Seville. Dance, music and stage performances in the evening are not to be missed. The museum is unusual, it tells the history of flamenco dance in a different way. The museum opened its doors in 2006, and the idea for its opening was given by flamenco dancer and famous choreographer Christina Hojos. Cristina Hoyos was born in Seville in 1946, and has been dancing and ballet since she was young. She developed her career in her hometown - Seville, but also in New York, Madrid and on many other world stages together with her dance partner Antonio Grades.

In 1987, she became the principal dancer of the National Ballet of Spain. She performed with her company at the Paris Festival. The first flamenco company that performed in Paris was the Cristina Hoyos Ballet. She participated in the filming of several films, and one of her greatest achievements was her performance at the opening and closing of the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona. Cristina has won numerous awards and is a member of the Spanish Academy of Performing Arts and holds the title of the most favorite daughter of the city of Seville since 2017.

A visit to the museum is special if you take the time for the performance, which lasts about an hour. Through the stage performance, you will learn everything about the history of this dance. The costume and dancers are outstanding. The energy coming from the stage wins the hearts of the audience.

The museum offers an insight into fantastic photos, records and numerous elements of flamenco on 4 floors that bring an impression of the art and history of flamenco, from its origin to the present day.
The building in which the Museum is located is located in the old part of the city called Santa Cruz, in the palaces from the 18th century.
