A team dance with a technical director. Something like that would be the pericon. To start, there must be at least two pairs (four players), although the more they are, the more fun and picturesque the dance will be. But, in addition to the dancers, there is another protagonist of the scene: the pericon itself.
As we said, the pericon would be like the DT of the team. Also called a cane dancer, he is in charge of guiding the dance, announcing the figures to be formed by the dancers in a loud voice. “Aura!” (in Creole: “now”) is the command that comes from his mouth to indicate the exact moment for each movement. However, not everyone can be periconeal: it must be chosen with great care, because the success of the dance depends on his ingenuity.
It is said to have been enjoyed from a teenage Sarmiento to San Martín, who dispersed it and his army along the Río de la Plata. The peasants and the aristocracy danced it indistinctly, and its most splendid moment coincided with the time of Independence. Not for nothing does the dance end with the couples waving their blue and white handkerchiefs at the cry of a fervent “Long live the Homeland!” Viva!
