The Apulian pizzica is a traditional folk dance of Salento. It is a form of cultural expression that combines music, song and dance, and is often performed during local festivals and celebrations.
The Apulian pizzica has ancient roots and is closely associated with the popular culture and traditions of the region. Historically, this dance was used to cure “taranta bite” or “tarantism”, a kind of hysteria or healing dance, believed to be caused by the bite of a venomous spider called a tarantula.
Today the Apulian pizzica has become a form of artistic expression and entertainment. The teachers explain the basic movements, the attitude and the meaning of the various body positions.
Apulian pizzica lessons are both fun and engaging. It is a group dance that encourages social interaction and self-expression through movement and music.
