Update 12 August: There are going to be Canarian dance classes in El Médano from 17 to 21 August in the Centro Cívico-Deportivo M3: this is in Av. Magallanes – the parallel road to the left of the main road down to the front. The classes will be held between 5 and 8pm, and although free, numbers are limited so registration is required. This can be done in the town’s tourism office or by phone to 922 176 002.
The classes are an adjunct to this year’s Muestra Folclórica de los Pueblos, the 22nd time the event has been held. It will see El Médano’s streets, plazas and the harbour area full of dancing and entertainment between 17 and 23 August (see HERE).
Original post 18 June: How many times have we read about a Baile de Magos (see HERE), or seen Canarians of all ages get up and dance in the myriad local fiestas throughout the island, and wished we could join in but felt inhibited because we didn’t know the traditional dances that the locals do as second nature? Well now we can learn!
Arona Ayuntamiento has announced Canarian Dance classes on Mondays and Wednesdays throughout July in Los Cristianos’ cultural centre. Classes start Wednesday 1 July, and anyone interested just needs to register: it costs €5, and can be done at the cultural centre itself Monday to Friday 9am to 2pm and 4-9pm, except Tuesdays which are 9am to 6pm.
