South American/Latin American carnival experience
EYFS, KS1 and KS2
Bring the magic and dance of Argentinian carnival ‘Murga’ to your school, class or venue.
Murga is a form of musical theatre performed in Argentina and Uruguay to celebrate carnival through singing, dancing and drumming.
Children will be taken on a journey of Latin American rhythm and culture mixing vocals, percussion, colour and movement. Whilst learning Spanish in a fun and creative environment children will prepare for a short (or long!) parade at the end of the session.
