Nia With Guki

Come Dance with me (and sometimes Juno) on Wednesday mornings!

Calling all Tarantists! Llamando a todo Tarantista!
In case you didn’t know what a tarantist is, I didn’t either. It turns out that in late 15th century Italy, in the town of Taranta, a strange malady overtook the population, and people were gripped by an uncontrollable urge to dance. Yes. To dance! The reasons why have faded through the centuries, starting with the oddball that when someone got bitten by a tarantula the only way to shake off the poison was through wild dancing.

I’m here to tell you that you don’t need to get bitten by a tarantula to get this uncontrollable urge to dance! With some good music and some really good dance moves, you too will succumb to tarantism, guaranteed. Come ye tarantist, and dance with us every Wednesday morning! Using movements from the dance arts, the healing arts and the martial arts you will be amazed at how fun it is to move your body in a way that is deliciously delightful.

En caso de que no tengas idea lo que es tarantismo, hace muchos siglos en el pueblito de Taranta en Italia hubo una epidemia de tarantismo en donde la gente empezaba a bailar incontrolablemente por cualquier razon a cualquier hora. Se creia que cuando una tarantula picaba a la gente, les daba un deseo incontrollable de bailar!
Pues, a mi no me pico ninguna tarantula, pero ese deseo incontrollable de bailar me surge diario al escuchar buena musica.

Te invito a ver si tu tienes esta misma condicion tarantista, que con buena musica y movimientos corporales resulta en ese deseo incontrollable de bailar sin que te tenga que picar una tarantula! Te invito, cada miercoles por la manana, a bailar con otros tarantistas!
Usando movimientos de las artes de la danza, las artes curativas y las artes marciales, te sorprenderás de lo divertido que es mover tu cuerpo de una manera absolutamente deliciosa.
