Tarantella / Pizzica Dance Lessons (Zurich area)

Hi all,


Posted a long long time ago looking for this - anyone know where I can find Tarentella /Pizzica dancing lessons?


This is a type of music from southern Italy (puglia).


Not sure if this is the right area to post.


Thanks!

I can't imagine this will be easy to find. It's not even easy to find in southern Italy. Kids are not interested in this sort of thing anymore.

Your best bet is to find the local Italian clubs/associations in and around Zurich and ask there.

Hi MiniMia,


Actually it can be found in Pulglia region pretty widely, I'd say over the past 5 years there as been a re-kindling of this and there are groups with young-folk playing in the area and some are on the World-music scene, i.e. with international following. Hots spots are Lecce and Gallipoli.


We were at a local town festival a couple weeks ago (south of Taranto) where the pizzica group was "Beddu ci Balla" - quite a few adults and children doing the dance in the audience (obviously trained).


We know there is a scene and lessons in Melbourne, Australia were my sister-in-law lives, so wondering if we can find it here. I'm probing local Italian network here as well (i'm not Italian, wife is).


Thanks !

That's great that there is a resurgence. It would be a shame to lose it.

Post a video during your classes.
