Discipline, love for dance, friendship, dedication. These are just some of the words which certainly describe what Nahualli dancers have being doing for the past 11 years in Vancouver and what they are doing during Covid19’s #Stayhome and #SocialDistance requests from the government.
Our dancers have been utilizing technology to continue doing what they love… dancing #MexicanDanceinVancouver. Since the middle of March 2020, Nahualli Folklore Society has set up a weekly Mexican Dance practice, every Monday from 6:30pm as our regular studio rehearsal but this time through an online platform. At the beginning, it was challenging because we didn’t master the technological tools but that did not stop us from continuing. We care about our health and that of our communities.
From the zapateado techniques and skirt twirling to choreography, every class goes by so quickly that we don’t have much time to socialize. We are fortunate to have access to technology and we are thankful for the discipline and dedication our dancers have shown for Mexican Traditional Dance.
We encourage all our friends to #DanceAtHome. To connect online with those who matter, family, friends, work colleagues. Make that phone call, read a book, dance to any music that you like.
