Melbourne School of Tarantella is the first school dedicated to Southern Italian traditional dances in Australia since 2011. Born with the desire to preserve and share the rich tradition of the group of dances known as Tarantella, the school offers weekly classes for adults, school incursion, community workshops, dance and music performances for public and private events. Tarantella is a dance of many different codes and symbolism that allows individual expression in a group setting.
Weekly classes are held on Wednesday nights at 7pm in Workroom 5 at SITEWORKS, 33 Saxon street, Brunswick. Classes are inclusive, relaxed and fun. You will learn the steps of the most important dances of Puglia, Calabria and Campania, their history and development.
In each dance we encourage you to express your personality and attitude and celebrate this rich tradition!
