Korean dancing teams perform in Cuba
HAVANA (Yonhap) -- Korean dancers took their moves to South America the past weekend, performing in Cuba Friday and Sunday as part of the "Korean Dances Express in Cuba and South America" program, which will also take them to Colombia and Ecuador.
The Jeon Eun-ja Dance Company, Second Nature Dance Company, Dance Company Medius, Project Company House of Blue and Moves Collector's Dance Company shared a variety of Korean dance styles, ranging from traditional and modern Korean to hip-hop, at Teatro Miramar in the Cuban capital of Havana and at Teatro Jose Jacinto Milanes in Pinar del Rio. The performances received a warm welcome from both Cuban and Korean audience members.
The program is jointly organized by the Korea Foundation and the Korea Headquarters of CID-UNESCO.
The Korean dance groups will also go to Cali, Colombia, to participate in the sixth Inco Ballet Festival. Teams from Canada, Cuba, Spain, Brazil, Chile, the Dominican Republic, Venezuela, the Czech Republic and Colombia will take part in the festival.
South Korea's dancers will also perform in two international dance festivals in the Ecuadorian cities of Guayakuil and Cuenca, and hold workshops for local dancers on Korean traditional and B-boy dance styles.
The program was organized as a follow-up to Korean dance performances the two organizations hosted in Cuba in April of last year, as part of the Korea Foundation's culture and arts exchange partnership project.
