Spain, bull-fights and Flamenco dancing are probably as synonymous in the public mind as are Russell Flint, Spain and gypsy girls. Although strictly speaking, Flamenco is only one of several main groups of Spanish folk dance, it is generally accepted that the whole art-form is of ancient eastern origin.

The general style, and most obviously the hand and arm movements, are strongly suggestive of the Indian rather than European dances, presumably brought by nomadic groups
via Egypt and the Phoenicians to the western Mediterranean many centuries ago. Choreographies exist in Spain today dating from the time of Hellenic supremacy whilst later Roman writers often praised the qualities of the dancing girls of Spain.
