Beti Jai Alai had their first performance at La Casilla sports complex on 21 April 1968. The year 2018 marks their 50th anniversary. The folk dance company established in the district of Basurto, Bilbao, have become a reference in Basque culture and tradition. About 100 men and women have been part of it so far.

Now, Beti Jai Alai are coming back to the Arriaga Theatre to celebrate their 50th birthday. They will pay tribute to all their dantzaris and specially to their founder, the late Jon Pertika, with a show featuring their most iconic dance routines, enhanced by media effects.
