Joyce Master Class: Che Malambo

Group of people dancing on stage as another drums.

Get an introduction to Malambo, incorporating the tree main components of this percussive form: bombos (drums), boleadoras (rope with weights attached) and zapateo (the percussive footwork), demonstrating differences between the sureño (southern style of malambo) and norteño (northern style of malambo). Students will learn these original Argentinian competitive dances that exhibit beauty, fluidity, strength, and sheer bravado.

Presenting a thrilling, percussive dance and music spectacle, the Argentine-based company Che Malambo celebrates the unique South American cowboy tradition of the gaucho. This powerhouse all-male company of gauchos is directed by French choreographer and former ballet dancer, Gilles Brinas.
