By Candelaria da Floresta 
Every Wednesday of Septeber, 6pm-9pm
Cost: £20 per encounter

Traditional dances are a manifestation of the tribe’s spirit, of relationships 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 a great time.
