San Nicolas, Argentina. Organized by the Federation of Basque Argentine Clubs and coordinated by Aitor Alava, leader of the Ekin Dantzari Taldea in Buenos Aires, a Dance Workshop took place on June 29-30 at the Euzkal Etxea in San Nicolas.  The event was deemed very successful by its organizers and gathered more than 50 students, including representatives from dance groups from Cañuelas, Chacabuco, Ekin Kultur Taldea in Buenos Aires, Euskal Echea School in Buenos Aires, General Rodríguez, Gerora in Córdoba, José C. Paz, Lanús, Maipú, Olavarría, Pergamino, Roldán, Rosario, San Nicolás, Santa Rosa and the newly formed club in Venado Tuerto.

The repertoire chosen by Alava for the occasion included: Valsecito Criollo, Leitzako Ingurutxoa, Zurrume Dantza, Sorgin Dantza, Polka-Pik, Billantziko Txiki, Zazpi Jauzi Zaharra, Hondarribi Txikia, Arratiako Jota, Fandango/Arin Arin, Zaragi Dantza, Arribada and Biribilketa.  These dances were all chosen with the idea that the dance serve “as a recreational/educational tool that allows the strengthening of ties between Basque and Argentine dances, as well as providing information on  the history and geography of the Basque Country while widening the traditional choreographic horizon of Euskal Herria,” among other objectives.

Besides the practical, the workshop also included a lot of theoretical content.  On Saturday night, the film by Telmo Esnal Dantza was shown.
