The choreographic contest "Dance in Camino de Santiago” seeks to promote the art of choreography and therefore the creative values that emerge in the world panorama of the Dance of the XXI Century and taking as an inspiring model the Jacobean Route as it passes through the province of Burgos .
This choreographic contest offers us a vision of heritage, culture and the avant-garde through the art of dance, whose main driving force is the Camino de Santiago.
The potential of this route is visible in its stories and legends, in its places and people, in the interaction between space and time and above all in the inspiration of the proposed places that will serve as "muse" to the creator of dance.
The winning work of "Danza en el Camino", along with the winning work of "Dancing with stones" and the winners of Contemporary and Urban Dance will have their final exhibition and gala at the Ruins of the Roman Theater of Clunia, on Saturday, July 27 from 2019, at 10:30 p.m.
The choreographers must submit a video sketch of the choreography showing the style and the choreographic line, taking into account that they must adapt the initial sketch to each space and theme. The choreographers will have from Tuesday 16 to Friday 19 to work in the 4 spaces and be able to perform "live" the adjustments of their work to adapt them to the theme of the population.

Its name does not derive from network or networks and much less from ripa or ribacilla. Its etymology is evident and comes from rates, with the meaning of forest or grove in its diminutive form.
The history of the town and its castle, as well as the description of its parochial temple, have been outlined by Luciano Huidobro. Vestiges of the historical importance of the town are the remains of the house-palace, the roll and fountain as well as the several mansions of the main street and the square.
