Learn Italian Folk Dancing

Perhaps you are hosting a culture night at your school, or celebrating ethnic culture during the school day.  Perhaps you would like our dance director to teach the Tarantella to the guests at your wedding or event.  Your guests will have a wonderful time, while learning something new.  We love to share la cultura italiana with others.

Tradizione Vivente
(the Living Tradition)  

This Italian folk dance group has been in existence for over 70 years.  The original members of the group have since departed, only to leave behind a treasured legacy – Italian folk dancing.  The members of Tradizione Vivente preserve the Italian heritage through what they love most – the music, dancing and costumes of Italia.
