The GROUP ITXARTU’s origins are in the year 1976 when in Algorta-Getxo there is founded the GROUP OF BASQUE DANCERS ITXARTU OF ALGORTA-GETXO, with the aim to promote the Basque Culture, by means of the diffusion, recovery and expansion of the traditional Basque culture in its expression of Folklore. At these times there was important the labor developed by Iñaki Uria (Dancers’ Teacher), Fernando Torrontegi and Arantza Zubillaga.


In March, 1986 there is constituted formally the GROUP ITXARTU, under Ismael Moral's presidency, and be registered in the Record of Cultural Foundations dependent on the Department of Culture and Tourism of the Basque Government.
