Known as “elementos flamencos” in Spanish, the following props are used in flamenco dance:
el mantón – the shawl (see guide)
la bata de bola – long-trail skirt (see guide)
las castañuelas – the castanets (see guide)
el bastón – the cane
el abanico – the fan (see guide)
el sombrero “cordobés” or “andalúz” – Spanish hat
The elements require special dedication. Gradually, week by week, students develop the necessary strength and technique to properly handle and master these props.
