Basque Dance Performance with Oinkari Basque Dancers *
Oinkari Basque Dancers *
The Oinkari Basque Dancers are a non-profit organization with the mission of promoting and maintaining the Basque culture through performances of centuries-old dances from the Basque regions of Spain and France. They began in 1960 when a small group of Boise Basques traveled to the Basque Country to learn dances. Since then they have been carrying on the tradition of those initial members and expanded our repertoire to include almost forty different numbers, representing nearly each of the seven Basque provinces. All dancers are of Basque decent and many are second or third generation Oinkaris, excited to carry on the tradition.
Jaialdi, a large Basque festival in Boise, will be occurring in July 2022.
