The National University of Colombia at Manizales did not have a dance group set. Two years ago, started the first call was held to conduct three types of dance: Latin, Argentine and folkoric dance. since that time began to form the dance group of the National University of Colombia at Manizales. this group this conformed by 40 students of diferent careers. The dance group is one of the most important cultural groups of the university, because it represnts the history of Colombia through the dance and this is a space for the integral formation of students.

  1. The Bullerengue, is a music and dance from the Atlantic coast of Colombia and Panama Darien
    executed by the current descendants of the Maroons that inhabited this region.
    The word "bullerengue" means maternity pollerón or skirt, where the current survival customs were created.
    In the black cultural environment, it is defined as a dance of only women, of undoubtedly African ancestry, apparently not attached to customary rituals of Palenque de San Basilio, forming part of the acts of initiation of girls to puberty.
    The pace is well marked, autonomous, purely African, executed by drums, without any reference to the melody. The young women enter the yard in a row, clapping with their hands up, with a short step, similar to the cumbia and in an upright position. There are several figures, using the skirts, symbolizing the offering of fertility.
    The music includes a female drum or cheerful drum, accompanied by a male ollamador drum
    which carries the pace, also a totuma with a broken china plate on the inside. and the palms of the chorus accompanying the music.
    At the vocal level, bullerengue is led by a master of ceremonies and his singing is based on the narration of a story through questions and answers in tenths and fragmented lines.
