If the last time you saw Bolivia was in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, you’re in for a pre-Christmas extrovert treat. In this landlocked, multi-ethnic South American country they can get eight metres of rain a year - so no wonder they prefer dancing to robbing banks. This is the colourful land of folklore carnivals, especially El Carnaval de Oruro - with its devil dance. Lindsey is an articulate young dancer from La Paz, the administrative capital, who lives in London and gives talks about Bolivia and its cultures. Using Powerpoint, she demonstrates and explains four of the many exuberant regional dances. She is also bringing along a musician for some live entertainment.
