A jaleo is a chorus in flamenco in which dancers and the singer clap.

More particularly, in flamenco jaleo includes words of encouragement called out to the performers, as individuals or as a group, as well as hand-clapping. Among common jaleo shouts to cheer on the singers, the guitarists, or the dancers, are olé and así se canta or así se baila ("that's the way to sing," or "that's the way to dance"). Done to accompany the rhythm of the music, it may constitute an integral part of the flamenco art. The clapping can be done with cupped hands which makes a hollow sound (sordas), or a staccato effect can be produced with stiff fingers striking the palm of the other hand (altas). In addition, finger-snapping (pitos), foot stomping done when seated, and clicking sounds are used.
