Dancers from Gala Flamenco, Sadler’s Wells Flamenco Festival and quote from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, (c) Carole Edrich 201

The dance quote I chose for today, by Jane Austen is; “To be fond of dancing was a certain step towards falling in love.” From Pride and Prejudince the phrase leads to hopes of snaring Mr Bingley. The image, which comes from Gala Flamenco at the 2015 Sadler’s Wells Flamenco Festival is of Alegrias dancers, with bata de colas (skirts with long tails) which is interesting in view of the expression of the dancer in the front.
