Promethean Spark - COSTA RICA
"Danza para la Vida"
Promethean Spark - Danza para la Vida received the coveted ProArtes Grant from the Ministry of Culture with the help of Maria Laura Pardo and Danceworks which allowed us to run programs at the Instituto sobre Alcolismo y Farmacodpendencia por Jovenes (IAFA) for the first year and a half. The National Dance Company of Costa Rica was also instrumental in pioneering our programs. Roxana Coto and Miriam Lobo, dancers with the Compañia National de la Danza directed by Mimi Gonzalez, have undergone the Promethean Spark Methodology training and kept the classes going at the Alcoholism and Drug Rehabilitation Center for the Youth for the first six months. Miguel Bolaños, Rebekah Nickerson and Fiorella Facio have been indespensible over the past couple of years as well. We have had numerous graduation ceremonies both at the Teatro de la Danza and inside IAFA, where after 3 months of intensive training, these courageous young men and women present a grand performance on stage with government officials, family, friends, and teachers in the audience.
