There is a first time for everything!
My first live Flamenco experience at Tablao Flamenco Cordobes was great.
We booked this package online in advance; dinner at 7:30 PM and show at 9:00 PM. Dinner was buffet style and it offered a great selection of both Spanish and international dishes. After dinner, we were ushered into the dance room, which was a bit crammed. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed the show. I just wished I understood the lyrics.
I could not gauge the quality of the act and expertise of the dancers as this was the first time ever to watch a Flamenco dance. Watch-out Flaminco dancers now I can tell!
