Caribay Dance Group
Caribay Dance Group debuts as the first group of Venezuelan folk dance in Melbourne in April 2013 seeking to promote and convey interest in cultural values and traditions of this South American country. Acting as an artistic legacy for future Australian-Venezuelan generations through dance, sharing the joy of these beautiful dances showing how beautiful Venezuela is.

Although some of its members had strong backgrounds on mainstream styles like flamenco, belly dance and Latin rhythms, they realised there was a need for Venezuelan dances to be made known outside of our borders, and the Australian stage was the ideal one, given the love of Aussie audiences for the exotic Latin American culture.

Caribay Dance Group has participated in many multicultural events as Emerge Festival, QV Night Market, Chilean Festival, Ventana Street Festival, Melbourne Latin Summer Festival, Mornington Interfaith Festival, The Piers Festival, Clayton Festival, St Brigid’s Church, Coburg Festival, Global Village Festival and last but not least, with the Venezuelan community in Melbourne through the Venezuelan Association of Australia.
