La Libertad has several of the Peruvian North Coast dances, which no doubt the Marinera Norteña occupies a special place.
In the North, not also lost the habit of Cockfighting and Peruvian Step Horse breeding.
Of the Northern Sea, its exact origin is unknown. It acquired characteristics of northern colonial native dances and it was known as a marine during the independence of Peru (1821).
In the Northern seafaring man dances with shoes, on the other hand the woman, who represents the peasant, not used. With the constant practice the soles of the feet is tanned and harden and women can dance barefoot on hot, rough and irregular soils without affecting the quality of the dance.
The fishing in the North (departments of Lambayeque, La Libertad, Piura and others) is agile, airy, elegant, free, joyful and spontaneous showing during the dance a loving colloquium in which the lady flirts with picardie, cunning and intelligence by expressing their affection, while the male gallants, accompanies stalks and conquer his partner. We must not forget that this is a dance of counterpoint where the man and the lady must demonstrate his skill and ability. It should be noted that this last is being lost because there is a tendency that couples choreograph dancing to compete in the so-called "contests".
Regarding the typical dress of the ladies must mention that there is no Marinera dresses, but rather the dancers must wear typical dresses of the Northern towns running this style of seafood, that yes, always dancing with bare feet. The use of slippers, ballerinas, or any type of footwear for the interpretation of this dance is unacceptable.
In males the typical costume of Assistant is well-known with his poncho of thread and his wide-brimmed straw hat, but also, in some villages of the North used the simple sewing white denim suits characteristic of the Peruvian northern coast. As for footwear, it must be black and dress.
