Passion is Present in Madrid Spain....
It was Saturday night and date night was here! We had looked for about a week for the Flamenco in Madrid. We were looking to see a Flamenco show at the right time because the month of June and July is when the Flamenco dance comes to Madrid from all over Spain. I was searching for really good deals online when I thought duh just ask Raquel! She again gave us wonderful advise; we ended up at Villa Rosa. We walked into a gorgeous building covered in hand painted Spanish tile. They asked us to wait one moment and began seating. They called us up and showed us to our table, front and center of the stage. Trey asked if we paid more for those seats. Again, I didn't know if I had or not because I ordered them directly off the site all in español, so I just selected the best option where I could understand some of the words on the menu.
As we began with a bottle of Rioja, we looked across at each other again in awe that we were finally doing and seeing Spain! What we had been planning for nearly a year was finally here!! They brought us our first course. Cured meats and bread. Next was a tasting of 8 different Spanish tapas. It was absolutely out of this world. My favorite were these little round balls that are filled with cheese and spinach. Like croquettes but better!!! Third course was an entire skillet of seafood paella. This was enough to fill even Trey up twice! The wine was flowing, the food was divine, and then it began. This was by far one of the most passionate dances I have ever seen. It was as if you you could feel their every move. It started slow and the music sang out with what emotion the dance was feeling. When they began to pick up the pace I could feel their heart beat. As I sipped my water for relief their feet began to move even quicker and my jaw dropped. How could these people move so fast with so much control and poise? One dancer would complete their dance and another would approach the stage. Each bringing another form of passionate, romantic, and fierce translation of dance. After the performance Trey and I were in shock; it was captivating and unforgettable. Neither one of us could stop smiling. It was straight up giddy! They brought out the dessert menu because it comes with the meal. We ordered a lemon sorbet champaign, and the chocolate brownie. This ended our Flamenco Dancing and dining experience with happy bellies and cultured minds. What we gained from this experience is indescribable but if you ever get the opportunity to see Flamenco try it out; it is an experience in the true form of passion.
