The Chilean National Dance ‘La Cueca’, is being practiced by some talented and driven people in the Fairfield suburb of Bonnyrigg.

‘Grupo de Danza Montun’ is a group practicing a modern and innovative take on the traditional Chilean Cueca dance.

Leticia Avila, leader of the group and a Cueca dancer herself, said that the best aspect of the dancing La Cueca is the passion that is brought forward by the person undertaking the dance.
