    I would love to see a performance and learn basic flamenco dance moves by Maria Juncal. You can see how passionate she is about the dance form.

    I also appreciate how she says that anyone can learn flamenco at any age and its good for the soul. Most people tend to think that they are too old for an activity, but it doesn’t hurt to start and try at least once! Thanks for sharing this interview!

      Oh yes the fire in them is unmistakable isn’t it 🙂 It’s popular in so many countries around the world so if you look up flamenco groups online in your city/country it’s quite likely you’ll find something! Cheers to that 🙂

  3. I had no idea that the origin of Flamenco could be traced to gypsies from India! Maria Juncal sounds like a very strong woman with great passion on what she does. Flamenco is a dance with such a deep social background. Thank you for sharing this interesting post!

      Yes I was surprised to learn about the Indian connection too 🙂 A really interesting history there. Maria is such an incredible woman indeed and I’m so glad you enjoyed reading 🙂

  4. We recently met some fellow travelers from Spain and were surprised to learn how different the regions are from one another. I love how flamenco really tells a story through movement.

    This brings me back to my study abroad days in Spain when I watched and tried flamenco dancing! It must have been so interesting to interview Maria Juncal. It’s amazing that she was told so young that she had flamenco in her blood. I had no idea that flamenco was big in Japan either!

    I didn’t know that flamenco was so popular in Tokyo! It wonderful that you planned your Spain trip around your passion for flamenco and were able to meet such a big personality in this art. Very interesting post!
