Escola de Ball de Bot Calabruix

Mallorca, Spain


Mallorca’s dance school Calabriux was created by a group of friends with the intention of preserving and disseminating the most important aspects of one of Mallorca’s most popular dance, Ball de Pagés. The School is in Llucmajor, south-east from the capital.

The performances are varied with many short and different dances. Their musicians use traditional instruments like bagpipe, drums, flute and castanets worn by dancers. Their costumes are typical in the area of Mallorca. The dancers carry two suits, one made of dress fabrics and one is rustic that was formerly used for works on the field. The suit with better quality fabrics and elegance was formerly used for events of more height. The two suits are typical of the island of Mallorca.
