Dance Information

The killer whale (Orcinus orca), commonly referred to as the orca is a toothed whale belonging to the oceanic dolphin family.

Killer whales are found in all oceans, from the frigid Arctic and Antarctic regions to tropical seas. They are very sophisticated and effective predators and are extremely intelligent, having the second-largest brains among marine mammals.
