peruvian dancers in covent garden and a chance to win a trip to peru with kuoni
Part of a promotion arranged by Peru Tourism today, these two are dancing Festejos. This is an Afro-Peruvian dance from the coast and in it dancers are allowed quite a lot of leeway for improvisation, provided they follow the cajon (box drum) beat. The promotion also had a scale model of Machu Picchu in Lego, Ben Fogle (who I interviewed for something else) and was giving away 13,000 bars of Willies Cacao Chocolate which some may recognise from Channel 4’s Willie’s Wonky Chocolate Factory.
To each chocolate bar was attached the details of a competition to win a holiday in Peru with Kuoni. If you’d like to enter go to http://www.winperu.co.uk/
