Dieciocho at Nido

Today was the grade 3-5 Dieciocho (Chilean national day is the 18th September) performance at school. Nico and the 3rd graders danced the Massamora. And Thomas and the 5th graders danced La Cueca, the national dance of Chile.

They were dressed in the casual version of the vernacular. Check shirts and jeans, worn with big black hats. Both shirts made by mum, of course. Nico’s was made 2 years ago for Thomas, Thomas’s was completed last night! It cost a luca for the fabric. Everything else came out of the stash.


There was much waving of hankies. It’s a Chilean thing.
