Kate Causbie (Seattle/Puglia) and Francesco Faustino (Puglia) return to San Francisco for two days of Italian folk dance!

Saturday’s class will explore traditions, movements, and songs of the social pizzica pizzica, a folk and community dance from Salento, and how to use the in the “conversation” of the dance. Sunday’s class will build upon Saturday’s work, with a focus on dancing in la ronda – expressing ourselves through our culturally rooted movement —and the differences between various tarantelle, categories of pizzica, and awareness of local distinctions.

Note: Classes will be held in English, and translations of lyrics or terms will be provided as needed by our multilingual faculty.
