Peru is rich in regional dances, over 5000 exist. The workshop combines a lecture on the ethnic diversity of Peru with a panoramic illustration of the different music styles. We then focus on one or two dances of the coast and of the Andes. Students will learn about the contexts of these dances 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 within the language is encouraged.

Let's make it the new fashion, PERUVIAN DANCE dance alone, dance with a partner, dance with joy, dance for fun! Sexy and energetic.
