The Museum of Flamenco Dance is the place of reference to see the most authentic flamenco in the city. The seal of the master “Cristina Hoyos” and the historical references to Seville as one of the cradles of flamenco, cause great interest to all who visit us. Also attracting the attention of illustrious and well-known personalities, who for us, are just as important as all our visitors.
The Emperor of Japan, SAI Naruhito, included our museum among his activities in Spain for the anniversary of the Spain-Japan relationship. He visited the museum, attended the show and participated in a pleasant, typically Spanish dinner in the vault.
Cristina Hoyos acted as hostess for Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and Cayetana, Duchess of Alba. They enjoyed all the rooms of the museum and the show. Together they celebrated the consecration of Flamenco as Intangible Heritage of Humanity.
Gloria Macapagal, President of the Philippines, was also captivated by the museum rooms and the shows. She placed great emphasis on the origin of the Manila shawls from her homeland.
Nick Nolte, the famous actor, visited the Museum with his entire family, even daring them to take a dance class.
Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart visited us and attended one of our shows. Then they went to greet the artists.
Jean Reno, the well-known French actor (whose real name is Juan Moreno y Herrera-Jiménez, whose parents were born in Jerez de la Frontera), made us a visit and was delighted.
Actors such as Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage or Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, among many others from the “Game of Thrones” saga, could not resist the art of Flamenco and enjoyed a show in the purest “Sevillian” style. Already in 2014, a flamenco version of the intro of the series was recorded in the museum, a “Deja Vu” of the future visit of the actors.

In 2016 we were expecting the visit of the then President of the United States, Barack Obama. (a big fan of guitars, especially Spanish guitars), and for this reason, the Sevillian luthier Álvarez Bernal made an original Obama’s edition guitar as a gift from the city of Seville for his visit. Unfortunately, the Dallas bombing meant that the visit was cancelled and the guitar still awaits its owner in the Flamenco Dance Museum.
All of them, and many more, have discovered the magical world of Flamenco. Thank you for your visit. We look forward to seeing you.
