Fundacion Gramo Danse and DANZAREA have the pleasure of presenting the final product of the 5th Festival of Coreography for Children and Teenagers of Panama: BRIO 2018. After two months of hard work and preparation, the young choreographers are ready to present their creations to the public.
This year, we have 12 choreographers participating, among which we find EMILY, MEIBYS, MARITZEL, TATIANA and SUSANA, 6 DANZAREA students with ages between 9 and 14 years old. The rest is made up of dance students from various academies like STUDIO 9, BRISAS DEL GOLF, ARTE BALLET STUDIO, MOYRA'S PRODUCTIONS and ACADEMIA DANZA LABERINTO.
The 48 participants of BRIO 2018, including 22 from DANZAREA, attended the following workshops: "Panama, City of Encounters" central theme to be developed in their choreographies, music and dance workshops, choreographic collaboration, use of aerial elements to create, interpretation and finally a lighting workshop.
Additionally, each group/choreography had two sessions of feedback from dance professionals, who could appreciate the progress of each piece, and provide their opinions and recommendations to both young choreographers and dancers.
Now, we are reaching the end. It has been two months of hard work, long hours of assembly and rehearsals and we are ready to present these wonderful creations to the general public, through a gala presentation. We will also take some of the dance creations to Juan B. Sosa public school.
