More flamenco

We loved the flamenco we saw in Granada so much, that before we left Spain we wanted to go one more time, and we did!  If you're ever in Madrid, you should go here:
The walls were completely covered in this intricate detail carving work.
It was quite dark dark in there...these pictures aren't too amazing. 

In flamenco, they always have guitarists on stage, along with additional people clapping, and occasionally some singing too.  While one (or more) dancer dances, the rest stand along with the guitarists and clappers, and clap along too. 

Flamenco also has amazing stomping.  Extremely fast and energizing, I've never seen or heard anything like it.
