The summer holidays are upon us, and if you’re heading off on vacation this year we have some information that may be of interest to you – especially if you’re planning to shake your stuff at the local nightclubs.
Travel specialists Pettitts Travel have created a guide to some of the most fabulous different dance styles around the world, ranging from the traditional dances of ballet in Italy and flamenco in Spain to lesser known styles, such as the kekak trance dance in Indonesia and the lion dance in China.
What is fascinating about all of these different styles of dance is that they are so much more than just entertainment, they also tell us so much about the different countries’ culture and history.
Some of these dances are so important in the native countries that they have even been given UNESCO World Heritage status.
Pettitt's travel has also produced individual illustrations of some of the 10 best dance styles from around the world, and better yet you can actually order copies of these illustrations for yourself.
All you have to do to order your batch is send a donation of your choice towards the charity The Flying Seagull Project. You can find out more about this project on the Pettitts website, and you can view the full guide of the different dance styles below.
