Types[ edit ] The earliest and most influential of the types of seguidilla are thought to originate in either La Mancha or Andalusia , having become typical of large parts of central Spain. Variants include the seguidilla manchega from La Mancha as well as the murciana from Murcia and the slightly faster sevillana of Seville. One of the most complex styles of seguidilla is the seguidilla flamenca or seguiriya , which is used in flamenco music. Dance[ edit ] The dance is performed in pairs with animated footwork reflecting the rhythm of the guitar and percussion, yet restrained upper body movement. One technique characteristic of the dance is known as bien parado, wherein the dancers stop motion at the end of a section of the music or stanza of text while the instruments continue playing into the next section. Usually the woman dancer also holds castanets.
