Tarantella Dance Instruction
October 6, 2017 @ 9:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Tarantella is a folk dance characterized by a fast upbeat tempo, traditionally accompanied by tambourines. It is among the most recognized forms of traditional southern Italian music.
In the Italian province of Taranto, the bite of the Tarantula spider was believed to be highly poisonous and to lead to a hysterical condition known as tarantism. This became known as the Tarantella.
