La Marinera ~ the Dance of Peru


This video is soooo cute I just had to share it! The traditional dance of Peru, there is the Northern version "La Marinera Norteña" and from the capital "La Marinera Limeña". The video depicts the northern version where the male uses a wide brim hat and the female dances in her bare feet. This dance is very graceful with a lot of movement and these two little dancers do a great job. The little girl in particular dances with so much expression and maturity. The city of Trujillo in northern Peru is the heart of this dance as can be seen on the video where the little couple dance in front of the famous ruins of Chan Chan just outside of the city. Enjoy!
