Comparsa Danzarines Canarios 2019

Danzarines Canarios at the Opening Parade on 1 March 2019

One of my favourite components of carnival, comparsas in Santa Cruz de Tenerife are said to be similar to the Brazillian Carnival Blocks, but actually appear to have more in common with the dancing, marching and drumming Samba Schools that have a strong community basis and are traditionally associated with a particular neighborhood.

Central Santa Cruz, right by the cruise ship port, is where Comparsa Danzarines Canarios have their headquarters. They were formed in 1971.
