Traditional Dance Culture in Peru

Thanks to funds raised for this project, we are able to keep traditions alive in our communities, by paying for traditional dance costumes and transport so the children can partake in dance competitions, growing in self-esteem and keep tradition strong. For the past month selected kids have been spending every spare moment practicing dancing, even during recreo! What for? This Sunday both schools, Truinfo and Maldonado, participated in a dance competition! Maldonado (wearing the red outfits) was first of the two schools to take the stage and did an exceptional job dancing a traditional dance from Cusco.

Theirs was the most complicated choreographed we had seen yet that day! Triunfo shortly followed and did an equally fantastic job with Erica, one of our second graders, participating as well. The kids from both schools were nothing but smiles, and sweat, after being able to show off their hard work and awesome dance moves. We are also so proud to say that Triunfo won 2nd place!!

What does this mean? That they had to keep on dancing. The following Monday, October 31, the kids once again put on the traditional dress and danced their hearts out in hopes of winning the competition. Stay tuned for the results!
