BAM Workshop Adults: Amidst the TARANTelle a foray dancing to the rhythms of the south

Traditional dances – the tarantella: old and new generations, led by the ancestral rhythm of the tambourine that incites and generates an extraordinary purifying energy, they will dance establishing connections between the tarantellas of Southern Italy from a stylistic, art of dancing, rhythmic and musical perspective.

Also to be offered is a basic choreography activity to prepare a group song that may be performed during the concert of the Orchestra Popolare Italiana

The scheduled activity is suitable for everyone with no former skills required, and for all ages. It is recommended to wear a loose-fitting dress or trousers, comfortable low-heel shoes that don’t make the feet slip and slide, or even better is barefoot. If you have them, bring castanets. 

We look forward to seeing you there!
