Primitively it was danced as a collective dance, without couples, with the few figures common to almost all archaic dances: rounds, rows, streamers, etc. The primitive forms of the carnival are also practiced in Jujuy, Jump. Catamarca and La Rioja.
In many cities of Salta and Jujuy people currently dance in pairs. The modern or parlor carnival is full of colorful and lively figures that infect the desire to dance. Meanwhile, the orchestra of quenas, charangos, guitars and hype (or box or “tinya”) fills the air with the typical cheerful melodies.
