Le Grand Ballet de la Martinique
Comprised of about thirty musicians and dancers dressed in traditional costumes, Les Ballets De La Martinique perform with the "old school" rhythms of beguine and mazurka. A very entertaining performance to enjoy in the evenings in selected hotels.
Belya is the celebration dance! Usually danced at weddings, christenings or any happy occasion. Beyla is very acrobatic as the dancers jump and hit the ground on the rhythm.
