In this outstanding DVD Juan Serrano shares the spotlight with dancer Andrea Sanchez, and explains the interaction of the guitarist and dancer in the flamenco tradition. A sophisticated 3-camera filming technique, including split-screen and picture-in-picture format, reveals all aspects of this artistic relationship. Maestro Serrano applies his formidable knowledge of the flamenco guitar to the following rhythms in a perfectly synchronized display of technique and flamenco duende y gracia (fire and grace): Sevillanas, Farruca, Tangos, Romeras, Alegrias, Zapateado, and Bulerias. This video would be of interest to the aspiring flamenco dancer as well as the intermediate flamenco guitarist.

    This short performance by Juan Serrano and Andrea Sanchez includes a Sevillanas, Farrucas, Romeras, alegrias, zapateado, and an improvised bulerias. In between the songs Maestro serrano gives some valuable advice about accompanying dancers. However, there were times in the performance that I felt were lacking some of the qualities that...

    he spoke about. I think it just feels a little too rehearsed, if you know what I mean. If you are a guitarist interested in working with a dancer, then this video will interest you. But if you are just a fan looking for some great performance, I can think of some better DVD's to buy.
