Oro Lenca — ¡Viva La Esperanza! ¡Viva Intibucá!

Dancers of the Ballet Folklórico de Honduras Oro Lenca perform the dance Arranca Terrones in front of La Gruta in La Esperanza.

Arranca Terrones

This is a creole dance that originates from the municipality of Trinidad in the department of Santa Bárbara. In times passed, the floors of the houses of farmers were not made of cement, brick or wood, but only earth or clay, so during festivals dancing pulled out clods of earth from the floors, as described by the name in Spanish.
