2013 Rehearsal Schedule

Est. 1980

Every year
the Boise Onati Dancers don the distinctive folk dance costumes of Oņati in the Basque Country--the sash, skirt and castanets--to perform a variation of the Korpus dantzak. These liturgical dances, dating back several centuries, are characterized by gestures of reverence; they are danced form of prayer.  In conjunction with the celebration of the patron St. Igatius at the end of July in Boise, the "trakatan--trakatan" clatter of the dancers' castanets can be heard as the Idaho Euskaldunak (Basques) and their friends once again gather to keep this unique celebration alive. Follow the links above for more information.   On egin--Enjoy your visit!
