Traditional Dances from around the World 

danzas del mundo

By Candelaria da Floresta 
Every Wednesday of September, 6pm-9pm.
Cost: £20 per session.

Traditional dances are a manifestation of a tribe’s spirit, of our relationship with others and with the natural beings around. They are always changing while keeping the unique identity of the group, magically united to other societies by archetypal patterns. Intercultural dances help us to gain a more vivid perception of other worldviews, to connect and energize our body, to experience new rhythms, and to communicate with others while having fun!
● Physical training for popular dances
● Traditional dances from South American Folklore: Tango, Chacarera, Zamba
● Afrobrazilean Dances of the Orixás
● AfroContemporary fusions
● Stretching and relaxation

Commonland Project:

Commonland believes that landscape restoration offers large untapped opportunities for sustainable economic development. To demonstrate this potential, the company develops landscape restoration projects that are based on business cases.

Multidisciplinary teams actively involve investors, companies and entrepreneurs in long-term restoration partnerships with farmers and land-users. Long-term commitment is important as it takes approximately 20 years – or one generation – to restore a landscape. Their holistic restoration approach combines and connects natural and economic landscape zones and delivers 4 returns

Commonland’s goal is to realize large-scale landscape restoration with local farmers, land-users and experts, based on sustainable business cases. Our mission is to contribute to a large-scale landscape restoration industry, aligned with international policies and guidelines.
