Flamenco Day

The Flamenco Dancer


Her arms twirl up in the air like fire.



The tapping of the shoes, the clicking of the castanets and the clacking of the clapping.

The bright lights hit the stage.

She swirls her skirt and turns around. The crowd shouts ole, ole ole, ole.

The drums bang louder, the guitar strums louder.

Suddenly the music got quieter and the dancing got slower.


Then her feet smack the ground like hailstones hitting umbrellas. Now she spins like a hurricane.


The lights slowly turn off and everybody claps for the amazing flamenco dancing - clap, clap, clap, clap, clap clap, clap.
