My Travels to Guatemala

Last night, I arrived in Boston after spending two amazing weeks dancing, teaching, and performing in Guatemala! I traveled with an organization called JUNTOS Collective, which is a non-profit group that aims to engage and stimulate communities of dance lovers world-wide.


We traveled to Livingston, Xela, Retalhuleu, Antigua, and Guatemala City. I met and worked with people of all ages and backgrounds. Our outreach ranged from performing at HIV Centers, hospitals, and public schools and on community stages, tile floors, and concrete surfaces. This included a school for deaf children, dancers from a professional theme park, people who had no dance training, and professional ballet school students.

Oh, and one other miniscule detail. I didn’t speak a lick of Spanish past “Hola” and “Gracias”.
