As I mentioned in part one of today’s post, I noticed a large group of people enter the restaurant area carrying traditional Panamanian attire and I sensed that good things were going to happen. I went over to the restaurant area and the BONLAC dancers were being introduced and I learned that shortly they would perform several traditional dances.
Following the introduction, they took a short break for the dancers to get ready. Hey, I was ready too. Glad I just put a fresh set of batteries in the camera.
Now as you look at the next set of photos, you will have to imagine traditional Panamanian music playing. It is definitely happy music.
At the end, they invited the audience to join in and everyone had a great time. Just look.
Following the performance, the dancers went outside to be photographed. Of course I tagged along.
This is a photo of all the ladies.
Here is entire group and I understand the director is gentleman on the back row.
Here is a photo of one of the ladies.
They insisted that I have my picture taken. Normally, I am quite shy, but who can resist having your photo taken between two beautiful women?
I hope you enjoyed today’s outing. I know I did. Don’t forget to check the Chiriqui Chatter Photo Album for the rest of the photos.
Here are three videos from the performance. Each was taken from a different dance. All contain sound and show the traditional dance of Panama. These are not the entire dance, but just enough to give you a flavor.
