Sevillanas and Flamenco are the same thing?

Most of the times, when people hear “Sevillanas” the first thing that comes to their minds is “Flamenco,” or the other way around. However, although the dividing line is quite slight, there is actually a difference between them. Sevillanas are part of the folklore originated in Seville, while Flamenco originated in the region of Andalusia and has a very wide and deep history.

Sellivanas are usually danced in couples and in series of four. The four of them have the same musical structure and although they can be danced differently, there are always specific moments when the dancers do certain steps.

On the other hand, Flamenco comprises several palos and the music, compass, structure and essence changes from one palo to another. Nonetheless, Sevillanas are now part of the Flamenco palos belonging to the Andalusian folklore. In fact, nowadays, most of the students of Flamenco also learn Sevillanas.

All in all, in spite of the distinction of their origins, Sevillanas and Flamenco are closely related to each other.
