Garifuna Folk Dance
Garifuna dances include movements and rhythms that derive from our unique blend of Indian, British, African and Caribbean roots. Flamingo Cultural Center offers workshops that rescues and teaches Garifuna dances and rhythms, as well as the clothing and musical instruments.
Our dance workshops for children, adolescents and adults are taught by expert dancers in Garifuna dances, who teach the new generation to preserve the cultural legacy that our ancestors used to celebrate life and important social events.
Our local musicians share their knowledge for the creation of drums and instruments of local percussion, as well as to learn to play them, generating a characteristic rhythm called ¨punta¨, which is typical of the Garifuna culture.
