TRADITIONAL SPANISH DANCES

There is a wide variety of traditional local dances in Spain.

Although many of them share a common origin (similar steps or moves), each autonomous region, city or town usually has its own unique dance.

Sones in Extremadura, Sevillanas in Andalusia, Jotas in Aragon, Pericotes in Cantabria, Seguidillas in Castile-La Mancha and Castile-Leon, the Sardana in Catalonia, the Chotis in Madrid, Zortzicos in Navarre, Moixigangas in the Region of Valencia, the Muñeira in Galicia, Copeos in the Balearic Islands, the Danza de los Palos in La Rioja, the Aurresku in the Basque Country, the Corri-Corri in Asturias and Parrandas in Murcia, are just a few examples of the wealth of dances to be found in Spain.

There are so many more it would be impossible to list them all here.

Also, some dances were taken to the American colonies and returned infused with other cultures, known as “danzas de ida y vuelta” [return trip dances]. The Tango, Cumbia and Merengue are three examples of this.

With this in mind, Correos is issuing a Premium Sheet celebrating the strength of Spanish traditions; in this case, traditional dances.

The Sheet is presented as a die-cut guitar shape, and when opened, plays a traditional Spanish melody.

It is decorated with an illustration of dancers' legs in traditional stockings and espadrilles. It also includes an image of castanets and a group of women dancing in traditional costume.

The stamp is dedicated to “crotacología”, or the art of playing the castanets. It depicts this percussion instrument being used in traditional Spanish dances.

The stamp’s background shows the colours of the Spanish flag - red and yellow.
