National dances

Our typical dances arrived with the Spanish conquerors. They have different figures where the dancers show off with soft and lively movements that fill us with nostalgia, beauty and tradition. Among the different regions of the country, the plain had its own dances, such as the "gato", the "cielito", the "mediacaña", the "triunfo", the "pericón" and the "malambo".


The dances of two dancers have choreography full of love advances. Each dance of two dancers has a complete sense and the dancers are actors within the musical rhythm.
The dances that need a bigger number of couples are the "pericón" and the "mediacaña". These dances have slower movements and a great variety of figures in its development. It was not always possible to count on a great number of couples, although it was the dancers’ preference.
