During this dance workshop we will discuss the muiñeira in detail. This lively and elegant dance is rhythmically related to the jig (6/8) and is danced at every party in Galicia. We learn the basic steps, followed by a number of variations, and work out a complete dance.

Then we will take a look at some basic steps of that other important Galician dance, the iota (3/4), so that everyone could be ready for the ball that follows!
