- Dance along at the Caja Madrid Flamenco Festival

January 16, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News can announce that Flamenco is the traditional dance of Spain and anyone staying at Madrid hotels in February will have the opportunity to get close to the action at one event celebrating the art form.

The Caja Madrid Flamenco Festival is the most important celebration of its kind in the Mediterranean country and those who head to the spectacle can see performances from some of the best dancers and musicians in the industry.

It takes place between February 16th and 22nd at La Casa Encendida and Teatro Canal de la Comunidad de Madrid, with many performances occurring in the evenings when the sun begins to set, which will no doubt add plenty of atmosphere.

There is likely to be all manner of beautiful costumes and clicking of castanets for audiences to enjoy and tap their feet along to as they experience a real slice of Spanish tradition.

Tickets for patio performances at Las Casa Encendida cost 3 (£2.69), while those at the Teatro Canal de la Comunidad de Madrid are priced between 9 and 33, What's on When advises.

Flamenco is native to the Andalucian region of Spain, although it is now enjoyed all over the country.

If you're heading to the Caja Madrid Flamenco Festival this year, we strongly advise that you book your hoteles Madrid as soon as possible, given the huge popularity of the event.
