    Amantani Town Hall: Inca Disco

    by Zanzibargirl Written Mar 25, 2008

    A great experience of local Peruvian folk music and dance. Get all dressed up to be wisked around the dancefloor in a series of dances native to the island and this area of Peru. It will sure keep you on your toes. Its nothing like any other disco experience you will ever have had that is for sure. Its also a great way to meet fellow tourists, locals and immerse yourself in a culture. Fun for everyone! And you wont be able to keep the smile off your face I promise!

    Dress Code: Local attire, family stay hosts dress you up in their traditional dress to set you in the mood.

    Dancing

    by morgr Written Jun 17, 2005

    In the evening our family lent us ponchos and the dad walked us (in the pitch dark) to a hall for a dance. The local ladies dressed in their traditional dress and got us dancing with them (wich consisted of nothing more than basically moving your arms back and forth and stepping back and forth, even an idiot could dance this).

    In retrospect, I found it to be rather cheesy, quite frankly. But with the right amount of beer (wich was not cheap on Amantani) just about anything can be fun, as we managed to make that night.

    On the island of Amantani, there isn't any concept of 'nightlife'. For a large portion of the island - there's not even any electricity.

    However, when a group of tourists visit, the locals will put on a dance at one of the buildings of the village in your honour!. Lighted wih white gas lanterns, and accompanied by a local band playing local instruments, you'll be taught by one of your homestay family some of the local dances. You definitely need to be in good shape to participate - although the dance steps aren't complicated - the songs can go on for 15-20 minutes at a time! The Peruvian equivalent of an aerobics class :)

    As part of the dance, you'll be expected to dress in local costume, which for the gentlemen means a poncho and warm hat, while the women have it much worse - with multiple skirts, a headwrap etc (see picture)
