Istituto Comprensivo Socrate - Italy

Hello,Europe! Here we are, ready to learn about your schools, countries and dances.
We are going to dance a"Tarantella",a southern Italian couple folk dance, accompanied by tambourines. The term "Tarantella" comes from "tarantula"(or the Mediterranean black widow) spider. The original legend tells that someone who had been bitten by a tarantula had to dance to a upbeat tempo to sweat the poison out.
We hope our dance will be nice, even without tarantulas!
