The folclore from Granada is the result of the cultural mixture that took place in this area during centuries. Lots of villages and towns of our province, after the Reconquest, were repopulated, among others, by people from Castilla y León, Castilla La Mancha, Aragón, and as it is natural, they also brought their customs, dances and singings. This makes Granada, the last kingdom that was incorporated to the Modern State of Spain, be so rich in dances and transmit such a rich and varied inheritance. In Granada, every place has an unmistakable seal, as a reflection of the different ways of being, different climates, customs, and lifestyles.

As we watch the dances of Granada, they offer us a range of styles, a reflection of the variety of landscapes and people from the province. A division, that is geographical and aesthetic, brings dances from Granada capital city, the Coast, the Alpujarra and the northern area of the province (the altiplanos of Baza and Huéscar). We find a little of everything in the generous tradition from Granada: the enigmatic gipsy dances, the joyful ingenuity of the country airs, the elegance of the salons, the free-and-easy nerve of the coastal areas.
