Croatian Traditional Dance Performance


In the same afternoon that I first contemplated a visit to Croatia there just so happened to be a performance of traditional Croatian song and dance at the National Theater near where I live.  How is that for mysterious workings of the universe?  You don't have to wait for the tour to come to your town; you can get your own dose of Croatian Folk with a car rental from Zagareb International Airport.

National Theater, Costa Rica

Every Tuesday at noon my local theater in San Jose, Costa Rica offers cultural performances for a reduced entrance price.  These are very popular with moms, students, and tourists, and the performances have ranged from hip hop dance to a claymation parody on Costa Rican culture (hilarious!).  If you happen to be visiting Costa Rica and are near the capital on a Tuesday the National Theater is definitely a place you should stop the car rental in San Jose.  Aside from being absolutely beautiful inside, these matinée performances are truly world class.

The Croatian dancers were simply amazing!  From the intricate details of their traditional costumes right down to the tight chords of their traditional string instruments.  The dances were so well choreographed.  In the beginning it was a little hard to see the skill of the dancers, then as the women wove between one another in tighter, more complicated configurations and the men's feet began to scuff around faster and faster you could just feel the entire audience work into a frenzy.  Called the Folklorni Ansambl Lindjo, you can find out more about them and other performances at the Costa Rica National Theater.
