Traditional dance in Peru
This month we celebrated the 14th anniversary of the Victor Maldonado school. All of the children got dressed up in traditional outfits and performed dances that they had learned specially with the local dance teacher. After weeks of practicing they finally got to show off what they had learned.
The kids loved it and the dances were all amazing! All the volunteers, staff and teachers joined in too with an impressive performance of "Shake your tail feather".
Maybe not quite up to the standard of the kids but it certainly got a few laughs! We also had some singing from grades 1 and 2 and a special performance from Naomi and her sister, Daniela, who for two little girls, have the most incredible voices.
After all of the performances "hora loca" began, which certainly was crazy! There were whistles, balloons, confetti, lots of party games and most importantly - a clown! Everyone got involved and there were smiling faces all round. After this, everyone dug in to some well-deserved lunch. An unforgettable, action-packed day for everyone.
