Elai-Alai dance and music group was created in 1962, as a result of a public initiative and following a secular vocation in our town. From then on, the personality and renown of our group has built up within and outside the Basque Country's boundaries. This has been due to a subtle but constant task of retrieval, preservation and development of our very prolific Basque folklore.

Our group has been invited to numerous international festivals and a variety of events, always accomplishing a roaring audience and press success, as well as important recognitions, such as the Salm Crown in Senones (France) and the First Award in the International Folklore Contest in Gorizia, Italy.

The group has also represented the Basque Country in; Belgium, Bulgaria, Check Republic, England, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Israel, Mexico, Norway, Poland, Romania, Sardinia, Switzerland…

In our group repertoire we include dances from the different regions in the Basque Country, like Dantzari Dantza (from Bizkaia) or Ezpatadantza and Erreberentzia (from Gipuzkoa).
