What are sevillanas?

Sevillanas are the traditional music and dance from the city of Sevilla, their vivid style is full of turns. Sevillanas are formed by four coplas or parts  and follow a prescribed choreograph; they are danced in pairs that can be of any gender and age. In Southern Spain they are taught in many schools. With their roots in the Castilian seguidillas they were influenced by flamenco in the XIX century and have since become the quintessential dance of every Southern fiesta. You will see partygoers at Spanish ferias and weddings perform sevillanas with much flair and, despite very few of them having any professional dance education, this is really the essence of sevillanas: they are the dance of the people.
