This Seville museum about flamenco was created thanks to the initiative of the famous dancer Cristina Hoyos and it opened its doors in 2006. Its aim is to inform you about everything related to flamenco, its origins, influences and styles and about how it is practiced today. Therefore, the premises are different rooms with many interactive displays that tell you about the history, culture, and styles of flamenco, along with exhibits highlighting the fashion.
Cristina Hoyos started dancing as a child and performing when she was a teenager. She hasn’t stopped since. Apart from her impressive 20-year career as the leading dancer of Antonio Gades’ company, she then created her own one in 1988. She performed all over the world, from New York to Tokyo, becoming an international star.
She has been awarded many honors throughout the years. Nowadays experts consider her a pillar of flamenco dancing who has made an imprint on it, reaching frontiers and a wide audience no one had before.
