< Our workshop (Oct. 2009) for the dances from the "mutil dantzak" of the Baztan region of Nafarroa was conducted by our visiting Basque country instructor Patxi Larralde who has developed a system for the teaching of these dances.  These workshops are sponsored by N.A.B.O. and hosted by various Basque clubs.
