Dance Workshop

The Andean region is rich in many traditional, colorful dances.

The workshop combines a lecture that focuses on the ethnic diversity of Peruvian culture with a panoramic illustration of the different musical and dance styles. We then focus on one traditional dance from Cuzco, Peru called Valicha. Students will learn about the context of this dance and how to listen to and identify musical parts.
Warm up exercises will place the body into the specific postures required and accustom the ear to the beat. Steps will be learned individually to later be adapted to couple and group combinations. Improvisation is encouraged.

Let's dance!
Dance alone, dance with a partner, dance with joy, and dance for fun! Happy and energetic.

We suggest combining music performance and dance workshop to be held the same day to complement the whole Andean culture experience.
