This perfoming group is open to those 13 and older. No experience needed. Practices are held on Saturdays, from 10:00 am - 12:00 pm.

Are you tired of watching everyone have a good time and wish you too could participate? Would you like to have an excuse to do a little dancing? Here's your chance to learn the basic Basque dances done at picnics, festivals and banquets, along with some not so traditional social dances. The class meets every third Friday of the month, and focuses on one dance style, while going over the others. Two-hour classes at the Basque Cultural Center focus on the Fandango, Jota, Arin Arin, Lantzeko Ihauteria (carnival de lanz).

Look for more class updates in the newsletter. Bring your dancing shoes and get ready to have a great time!
