About the event
Pizarts Global Dance Hub's 8-Day Dance Exchange in Panama
We believe in igniting the aspirations of young dancers and fostering a path towards their dreams. Through the 8-Day Dance Exchange, a collaboration that transcends borders, we offer an extraordinary opportunity to immerse yourself in the realm of dance, connect with a new culture, and create lasting bonds. As you conclude this exchange, you'll not only carry enhanced dance skills but also a profound insight into the possibilities that lie ahead. Your experience will be encapsulated in memories and shared through movement, reflecting your remarkable journey and potential.
Day 1: Arrival and Welcome Dinner in Casco Viejo
Kick off an incredible 8-day journey with a warm welcome dinner in Casco Viejo, Panama City's historical district. Experience the blend of Spanish and French architecture that showcases the city's diverse cultures. As we settle into our accommodations, you'll receive an In-Country Handbook to guide our week's discussions. Get ready for a week filled with growth and exploration!
Day 2: Hike and Dance at University of Panama
Begin your day with a hike up Cerro Ancon, an inner-city rainforest boasting breathtaking views. After reconnecting with nature, embrace the world of dance. Attend a class led by University of Panama students to experience their training and movement. Afterward, visit Malambo Orphanage in Arraijan, breaking language barriers through the universal language of dance.
Day 3: Local Dance Techniques and Continued Outreach
Immerse yourself in a morning of dance classes featuring local techniques such as contemporary, breakdance, or dancehall. Return to Malambo Orphanage, enhancing your teaching skills and deepening connections. Split into groups and share dance classes with girls ages 6-15, bonding through the magic of movement.
Day 4: Panamanian Folkloric Dance and Aldea SOS Orphanage
Delve into Panama's cultural dance traditions with a Panamanian folkloric dance class. Later, visit Aldea SOS Orphanage, similar to Malambo, where you'll teach outdoor classes to children aged 6-18. Share choreography that they can continue practicing, leaving a lasting impact beyond the exchange.
Day 5: Teaching at University and Exploring Markets
Return to the University of Panama, this time teaching dance majors and sharing your expertise. After class, explore Panama City's vibrant markets, including the traditional "molas" crafted by the indigenous group Kunas. Immerse yourself in the local arts and crafts scene.
Day 6: Well-Deserved Free Time and Cultural Immersion
Take the morning to relax, reflect, or explore as you wish. After lunch, continue your journey with a visit to Casco Viejo for a cultural evening. Immerse yourself in the city's plazas and vibrant atmosphere.
Day 7: Beach Relaxation and Night Out Dancing
Unwind with a beach day, soaking in the sun and sand. Enjoy a carefree day by the water and recharge. In the evening, experience Panamanian nightlife with a dance night out, embracing the local dance culture and putting your newfound skills to the test.
Day 8: Farewell and Departure
Bid farewell to your newfound friends in Panama and head to the airport. Your compassion, talent, and love have left a positive impact on the communities you've touched throughout the week. Carry the movement forward and cherish the memories made during this transformative experience.
