This half day tour gives a fascinating insight into the artistic side of Seville. Your guide Sissi will pick you up from Corral del Rey and take you to visit the studios of various artists and sculptors introducing you to them personally where possible. The itinerary includes a visit to the studio of artist Chema Rodriguez, the studio of Miguel Garcia a famous sculptor whose bronze equestrian statue of Doña Maria stands in front of the Maestranza. You will visit Ana Medina and Patricia Abascal´s antique shop (they are two well-know Spanish socialites), the Galeria Haurie and then Sissi´s own studio where she exhibits and sells her Arabic calligraphy combining poetry extracts from the Al-Andalus.
For many visitors to Seville, flamenco is one of its greatest treasures. People flock to the many tablaos (flamenco bars) and flamenco shows to see something of this Andalusian culture whilst visiting the city.
Your afternoon with Judy will start with a talk on flamenco given by Judy at Corral del Rey. She will then take you to the Museo de Baile Flamenco, an institution to flamenco dance where you will have a private introductory class to flamenco given by Victor Bravo, the much acclaimed dancer who has worked and studied overseas and in Japan before returning to Spain where he works both as a choreographer and dancer. Your private class will include hand movements, basic rhythms and footwork. Afterwards, you will have time for a quick shower at the hotel before Judy takes you to see a flamenco performance. She will then accompany you to dinner or for tapas and you will be able to share your impressions and discuss what you have seen. This afternoon is a fantastic way to enjoy and participate in the world of flamenco.
