An invitation to a "Virtual Country Dance"

Baile de Magos in Santa Cruz de Tenerife in the before times

Whilst we list the Romerías in Tenerife as those usually take place in the streets, are free to attend and everyone is welcome (you'll probably be offered food and wine too), we don't bother to include any of the Baile de Magos (Peasants' or Country Dances) in our listings, because they're generally invitation or ticket only and have a very strict Canarian traditional dress code - those, generally bespoke, costumes cost an awful lot of money too.

However, in a potential positive to come out of the COVID-19 situation, I can see no reason why we cannot all join in with the "Virtual Country Dance" taking place from people's homes on Saturday 2 May to celebrate the Fiestas de Mayo in Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

We'll just have to trust you on the traditional costume, the video below will provide the music, make yourself some typical Canarian food, accompanied by a good wine, and you'll be ready to join this traditional Canarian knees-up from your house too.
