The first time I saw a flamenco dance performance, I was absolutely riveted. The strength, femininity and grace was empowering and completely won me over. Weeks later I was registered for flamenco dance classes and haven’t looked back since. Coy and captivating, a flamenco dancer is a great costume idea for women and girls alike!
Since I am a flamenco dancer myself, it makes for an easy Halloween costume! The year I dressed up as a flamenco dancer, the security guard at work teased me and said, “That’s like me dressing up as a security guard for Halloween.” But hey! If you already have the necessary parts and pieces, why not?
- Flower in your hair
- Dangly earrings
- Dress or long skirt skirt and top with polka dots (As an alternative, solid colors work as well, especially red and black!). Bonus points for ruffles!
- Optional: A shawl with tassels
- Optional: Fan
- High heel Mary Jane shoes
Show and Tell!
