This weekend a friend and I went to see a preformance of typical Peruvian dances. Each one a different style from a different region ranging from the Quechua dances of the highlands to the Spanish Marinara of Peru. No matter the style the joy of the dancers and the audience was evident. The smiles never left their faces. In between dances the audience would get up on stage and do some of their own dancing. Audience and dancers alike took joy in dancing until beads of sweat dripped from their faces but their smiles never faltered.
