This dance is called Jaimalė and it was choreographed by Ariane Butel, a choreographer and teacher who lives in Paris. The song is by the group Andriamad – you can download the dance cut of the song here! (Also check out the official video here if you like.)

The “I love to go to…” vibe of this song was inspiring to Ariane as a way to feel not stuck at home during the first pandemic summer, and it’s perfect for dancing and teaching over Zoom for online camp! Enjoy.

and here’s Ariane’s update video with help from dancers around the world:
