Donostia-San Sebastián. Jexux Larrea, from Donostia, recently invited the US, invited by NABO and some Basque clubs to teach dance workshops at various Basque dance groups.  Larrea is a dance teacher from the renowned dance group in Donostia, Argia,” and has ample experience as a dantzari and instructor, not only in Euskal Herria but also in the Diaspora where he has taught dance at a number of Udalekus, or the kids summer camp organized annually by NABO.

This time, Larrea toured the West and taught classes and workshops to dantzaris and dance groups in the following places: San Francisco (California), Ontario (Oregon), Boise (Idaho), Reno (Nevada), Salt Lake City (Utah), Buffalo (Wyoming) and Elko (Nevada). Each workshop ran for 3-4 days in each place.

Larrea’s visit also coincided with some of the screenings of the film Dantza by Telmo Esnal and he participated in some of the presentations along with the director and Gari Otamendi.
