Granada - Child friendly flamenco dancing show in December

We are a family of 6 - 2 pre teen kids & 4 adults. We will be in Granada in late December and would like to see a flamenco show that is not too expensive. We would love suggestions. Also would love suggestions for good family friendly places to eat. Thanks so much.

In Granada, I would recommend to go for the Thursday night performance at Peña Flamenca La Platería, one of the oldest exisiting flamenco clubs in Spain. In the Albaycín district close to the center and Plaza Nueva. This would be the real deal, and you could be up for an excperience to remember for very long. Sometimes they also have performances on Saturday nights. The performances starts at 10.30pm and the entrance is only some 10-12€ with one drink included. Also a restaurant, make reservations ahead. http://www.laplateria.org.es/

One of the greatest up and coming flamenco dancers in the world today, Patricia Guerrero, literally grew up here, and the greatest local flamenco artists perform here on a regular basis. This clip gives you an idea of the place and the atmosphere. Here, the extremely popular singer Diana Navarro from Málaga performs. She is not a traditional flamenco singer, but she has a beautiful voice and are fully capable of creating magic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qgPrfjinEgQ

Also more affordable than the more tourist oriented flamenco restaurants (tablaos) and the shows up in Sacromonte. A performance in the Sacromonte caves might nevertheless be an experience in itself. http://matadornetwork.com/nights/top...bs-in-granada/
