Madonna is on the lookout for a flamenco dancer for her upcoming tour: do you have what it takes?


She has already justified her love of bullfighting attire and now Madonna is branching out into another staple Spanish stereotype - flamenco dancing.

The queen of pop is holding open auditions in New York this week to find a flamenco dancer to join the Spanish-themed tour.

Madonna recently ordered custom-made bullfighting costumes for the Rebel Heart tour, which will stop in Barcelona on November 24th and 25th.

And who could forget her infamous fall at the Brit awards in the UK in February, all thanks to her Armani-designed bullfighter's cape? A string of bullfighting-inspired appearances led animal rights charities to criticize the singer for "glamourizing gore". 

The dancer auditions will be held in New York on May 6th and 7th so Spanish hopefuls had better book their plane tickets sooner rather than later.

The job ad, published on, stipulates that the candidate must be aged between 18 and 35 and can be of any ethnicity but must be able to learn other forms of dance.

She is also looking to hire a pole dancer and several street dancers.
