Centro Espanol La Haya is a nonprofit association driven by volunteers who dedicate their knowledge, enthusiasm and sense of humour with the goal of improving the prospect of the people and community. Our focus is to encourage the integration of Spanish people in the Netherlands and advertise the Spanish culture in the Netherlands, both to the Dutch and other nationalities.
Together we can enjoy and learn from the Spanish culture through one of our many activities.
We establish this by hosting many different activities and courses. Besides the planned activities, our centre is a meeting point where everyone is free to visit and meet other people.
The dance teachers and students of the Centro Espanol will be sharing their love of Sevillanas with visitors at the Fair. Watch them demonstrate how it’s done in the performance area of the Community Centre.
Sevillanas is a music and dance style originated in the south of Spain. The dance has similarities to the Flamenco, but the techniques are a bit less complicated and therefore easier to learn. The dance is an important part of the typical Andalusian fairs (ferias) and pilgrimage (Romerias).
Regularly a group of “Sevillana lovers” come together at different locations in the Hague to dance. The group of people consist of many different nationalities connected by the love for the Spanish culture and its dances and parties.
Centro Español organises dance courses for people who are interested in getting to know the dance and Spanish culture. For more information about us and our activities, please visit our website www.spaansedans.nl
The Feel at Home International Community Fair will be back in 2021!
Until then, click here for photos and the podcast of the day.
