TYPICAL DANCES

CERVERA DEL MAESTRE

LA CARABASSA, JOTA AND DANSA DANCES

These take place during the Main Town Festivities in August (formerly also for the patron saint festivals of Sant Sebastia and Mare de Deu de la Costa) and almost all young couples from the town participate in them. The typical dances are performed in a single day: in the afternoon it’s the children's dance and at night that of the adults.


MANTÓN DE MANILA, SARAGÜELLS I JUPETÍ

Couples carrying their corresponding castanets meet at night in front of the old town hall: women dressed in Manila shawls and wide skirts (adorned with handmade lace and aprons); the men with black shorts ("saragüells"), sash, white shirt, waistcoat ("jupetí") and headscarf. Both wearing typical Valencian espadrilles.
