Top 10 Signs You’re Obsessed with Flamenco

10.  Your once-perfectly pedicured feet now resemble the scrappy paws of some unidentified feral beast, complete with calluses, budding bunions and missing talons.

9.   Your friends and family are nearly outnumbered by fellow flamencophiles on your Facebook friends list.

8.   Eighty-percent of the items in your Google search history are things like “flamenco dresses” and “solea por buleria video.”

7.   You’ve been caught unconsciously playing palmas while listening to your iPod.

6.   You’ve been caught wailing or tirititran-ing while driving with the windows down.

5.   “Master bulerias” is ahead of “find a husband” on your list of goals.

4.   Your insomnia is exacerbated by the obsessive need to mentally rehearse your choreography over and over and over …

3.   You can’t step onto a wood floor without doing a rolling golpe.

2.   You pay your dance teacher before you pay your phone bill — and sometimes the rent.

1.   You’re up at all hours of the night blogging about flamenco.

  1. I’ve just discovered your blog and I’m enjoying it tremendously! I’m a Finnish flamencista, been dancing for 4 years in total (with a 20-year break in there though) and recently started singing, too. I totally recognise many of the things you write about, and this time I’m going to keep on dancing as long as I can move my toes 🙂 iOlé!

    1. Hi! I’m sorry, I’m JUST seeing your comment! As you can see, I haven’t written much lately, but I will be back soon!

      I’m so glad that you found my blog and that you can relate to things I’ve gone through — I think this flamenco thing is crazy for us all! The best part for me is getting to know flamencas all around the world. Thanks for your nice comments … Keep dancing and stay in touch!
