Chancleta is a dance and music from the eastern part of Cuba called Oriente that was created as part of the festivities of carnivals called conga/comparsa. Students will use wooden sandals to create the rhythms to compliment the music. Musical instruments used to create the rhythm are various sounding drums, bells, shakers and some found objects. A song will be taught to complete the activity. Putting the elements of song, music and dance will create a community and replicate the interactive experience. Andre Rosa-Artis and Tony Artis will lead the dance and music.
