Description

Learn a piece of Peruvian dance with me. We will start with a short introduction of Afro Peruvian history (XVI Century), and how it evolved over time. You will learn how this dance form developed because of the conditions of the time. I will explain the musical instruments and costumes. 

Then, we will start the warm-up while listening to a soft version of Festejo. 

Next, I will teach you the basic steps and we are going to dance on an amazing song by Peruvian performers. As this is a good work out, we are going to end it with a good stretch.
