Formentera street dancers to perform in Palma as part of Balearic celebration

foto-2020-dancers-11The Formentera Department of Youth reports that the Casal de Joves’ street dance group will represent Formentera in Balearic Islands Day celebrations in Palma (Mallorca). Five Formentera youths ages 14 to 15 will be joined by Imma Vidal, their dance teacher at the Casal, for an array of street and contemporary dance performances. The group will perform at 1.15pm at Passeig de Sagrera and 5.00pm at Mercat de Palma. Other events on the island will feature performances from Formentera troupes specialised in traditional dance and the hometown batucada percussion group Bloco Calubraria.

President Alejandra Ferrer will give a speech as part of Formentera’s Balearic Islands Day celebrations on 1 March. The event, which starts at 12 noon in Plaça de la Constitució, will include performances by Es Xacoters and Es Pastorells troupes and a sampling of signature fare from the island.

Tomorrow (Friday) comes with another Balearic Islands Day event, a concert by Pilar Mena & Bro’s (representing Formentera) and Ana Martí (representing Mallorca). Not only is La Mola’s Casa del Poble hosting the 8.00pm event, they’re providing other support as well. Similar concerts will take place simultaneously all across the islands. On Saturday, runners will once again line up for the ninth Formentera All Round Trail, setting out in La Savina harbour on a 72.5K tour of the local coastline that ends up right back where it started.
