He studied accounting. He was at school until the age of sixteen, but he had to give it up when the war began. He did not go to the war as he stayed in hiding at the time.His father was also a dancer but it was an uncle who taught him, because his father said that what he would do is teach them to work but not to dance. Before the war there were also dancers who danced in the Carnivals. They would go from house to house.(12.50”) The “abanderados” and “gobernantes” would wear a red beret and the rest in white. The clothes and the footwear were white and with red bands around them.Where the name “kaxkarot” comes from. It is no longer used to define the dancers from there. There were fourteen dancing groups and there were also musicians: a kettledrum, a base, a cornet and a clarinet. It was the village band and they were given a special price.
