The main objective is to show the Uruguayan identity through the various aspects of folk dance, music, instruments and costumes

‘Sentido Sur’ distinguishes itself by a large number of choreographies and a broad repertoire of Tango, Malambo etc. up to Candombé.
This is why this group disposes of a large number of experienced dancers to perform the various rhythms professionally.

Tuva is in the heart of Central Asia, where the Yenisei-river springs, and harbours an old nomad population that strives to preserve its own language, culture and traditions.
The surface of the Tuva republic is larger than Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxemburg, Denmark and Switzerland combined!
Nature blessed this country with remarkable beauty and comprises an exceptional climatologic diversity: from tundra to desert!
The autonomous republic of Tuva has a culture that is both striking and unusual. The Sayani National ballet was founded in 1969.
Their show is based on the myths and legends of the Asian people in this area and the group became the worthy representative of
the national heritage that collected the pearls of the Tuvan folklore.
