Dancing under the olive trees: typical Pizzica and Taranta Dance Class

Dancing under the olive trees: typical Pizzica and Taranta Dance Class

Pizzica and Tarantella are a type of music and dance which are extremely compelling and impossible to resist. The rhythm of drums, violins, accordions and harmonicas, and the frantic steps of the dancers wrapped in their long skirts are a unique expression of the Apulian popular culture.

Choose the opportunity to learn the Apulian typical dance under the olive trees. A traditional place, the perfect setting to recreate the same atmosphere of distant and times: the trulli, the centuries-old olive trees and the countryside of the Murgia. Be and feel a "tarantata" for a day!


In a traditional place and in the unique atmosphere of the Murgia countryside, immersed in the secular olive trees we will dance our typical dances: the Pizzica and the Taranta.

We will learn you the steps, the passion and the history of a dance that has become famous all over the world and now celebrated with the Festival della Taranta in Melendugno (near Lecce) , an international event.

Dancing we will retrace the true origin and rituals of this popular event. The bite of a black spider, the Tarantula, mostly during the heat summer, obliged men and women to a frantic dance to free themself from the poison and win the black shadow.

We will dance with the same frenetic passion, letting ourselves be involved in a "slow and exciting healing".

At the end, we will be able to enjoy a restorative and relaxing moment of tasting with typical products and local wine.This experience is very suggestive. We recommend to wear comfortable clothes. No flip flops. Kid Friendly.
