Savvy Vitality

These are the ramblings of love filled words.. natural, trying to be the most organic, and not perfect mommy to be..

In Panama, the tamborito (Panama’s national dance) is found in almost every region of the Republic, but the basic dance changes little from one province to another.The pollera in Panama evolved from the Spanish feminine dress of the seventeenth century, not from the court dress with its grand hoops covered with velvets and embroidered silks embellished with laces, gold, and silver threads - the dress which immediately comes to mind to most people because they have frequently seen the pictures of Velazquez. In the seventeenth century, as in any other time, contemporary with the beautiful court dresses there was the daily house dress, which in this epoch was generally white with a full skirt of two or three ruffles embroidered or appliqued in floral designs. This description is, simply, the pollera.
