Strength and agility, the main characteristics of the dance of Bolivian folklore, caporal.

When the clocks marked three in the afternoon on Sunday, thousands of people moved to the rhythm of the Bolivian caporal in more than 70 major cities of the world.

It was Japan, Spain, Argentina, Peru, Brazil, the United States, countries that recognized the heritage that as a State we have on this expression in dance.

The boots, hats, the little polleritas feminine and the agile jumps of men and “machas” raised to an unsuspected point the name of our country during the Second International Meeting of the Caporal.
