Observe or Join In- Dance Venues in Barcelona
Although the flamenco is more a dance of southern Spain, the dance has taken on in Barcelona as well and one of the must see activities for visitors to the beautiful city is to see a professional flamenco performance. Tablao de Carmen is probably the most popular nightclub offering flamenco performances by internationally acclaimed flamenco dancers, and the Poble Espanyol offers fabulous dinner theater that includes a flamenco show.
The Corto Club has live tango concerts and dancing every Wednesday night, and the Moscow Ballet Company is currently performing Swan Lake at the Teatre Tivoli. Sardana is the authentic Catalan dance of Barcelona and one that you may likely see performed in the streets during the city's many music and dance festivals throughout the year. It is danced in the round with everyone holding hands and performing intricate steps in an ever growing circle as more and more dancers join in.
