PERFORMING ARTS AND CULTURAL DANCE
Created in 1992, this non profit organization is a choreographic group that interprets traditional manifestations of Ecuador and the Andes. Their work reflects an etno-contemporary content and pre-Hispanic interpretation. They develop cultural and social projects that include training, production and creation of performing arts.
This organization believes that art can grow responsibly from the assessment, development and dissemination of their cultural traditions. They offer a friendly environment, and the integration into their internal activities such as classes, rehearsals, workshops, ceremonies and ancestral cultural production.
