The XVI Saya Caporal Dance Competition

  • June 28, 2014 at 5:30 pm

Concert Hall

This year, The Pro Bolivia Committee is proud to present the XVI Caporales Dance Competition. Caporales is a traditional Bolivian original dance from La Paz, Bolivia. It was presented to the public for the first time in 1969 by the Estrada brothers, who were inspired in the Afro-Bolivian Saya character of the Caporal, a dance from Yungas, a tropical region in La Paz. Today Caporales is a typical Bolivian folkloric dance that is very popular in the national festivities, particularly during Carnival. The male caporal custom depicts an old Spanish military guard wearing heeled boots bearing large bells known as "cascabeles", carrying a hat and a whip. The female Caporal dress consists of a mini dress, fancy high-heeled shoes, and a round top hat. The Pro Bolivian Committee, from Northern Virginia, is the largest Bolivian cultural non-profit organization outside Bolivia. Founded in 1988, it is a grass root organization nationally recognized for its commitment and excellence preserving Bolivian Culture.
