In 2015, ETD toured to Merida, Mexico and performed at the International Dance Festival Avant Garde. During the week long stay, we partnered with the producers, Umbral Danza, to give three 4-hour workshops to young dancers, orphans, and violated youth. 

At the beginning of the workshops, the children were very soft spoken and incredibly shy. By the end of the first day, they were clamoring over the dancers, grinning from ear to ear. Creating pure, innocent joy through dance, is more than we can ask for.

On the night of our last performance, we decided to have an impromptu show with the children. After our last piece finished, we invited the students to up on stage and dance with the whole company. The video is coming out with the tour documentary soon!
