Our kids at professional level auditions

Last May, six of our kids were chosen to represent Enlaces’ talent in the open audition for Hansel & Gretel, a contemporary dance and theatre approach to the Grimm’s Brothers classic, directed by the internationally recognized Fernando Hurtado and produced by Momentum, one of Panama’s most successful dance companies.

Three of our kids were casted between approximately 110 of the best professional and pre-professional dancers who auditioned for this performance. Rehearsals will begin on July 15th and the show will run the last week of August.  This is a great opportunity for our kids to show their talent and to feel the magic of performing for an audience in a professional context.
