Costa Rican Dance and BasketballVideos


The following two videos are from a parade that occurred in Heredia, Costa Rica last Sunday, the day of my arrival in Costa Rica. I do not know why there was a parade, but I suspect that Costa Ricans just like dancing in the streets.

The first video is of an odd game of Costa Rican basketball. I cannot figure it out, but thought it was funny enough to video.

The next film is of traditional Costa Rican dance and costumes, or so I am told. It is my impression that true tradition implies what is normal in a culture, that which walks by me in a parade is usually not normal, if it were then I do not think that anybody would watch. But I suppose there is a difference between living and archaic tradition. I thought that this dance was interesting none the less.
