The Daughters of Corn Dance Troupe visited the U.S. from September 16th through November 3rd, 2017. The dancers brought not only the beauty of their dancing, but also the inspirational story of their lives and their important work to help families in their communities.
“What a wonderful organization, talented dancers and lovely people you've brought to our community. I am completely blown away by your program and the difference you're making in people's lives. I think what is most striking is that you are able, on the one hand, to offer critical aid and support but, on the other hand, you are facilitating the inner strength and resilience of the (Nicaraguan) people to step into the lives they'd like to live. The authentic empowerment of your work is what makes it particularly remarkable.” Elizabeth Stookey Sunde, Founder & Creative Director, Music2Life, Wilder, VT (www.music2life.org)
The troupe visited 7 states and carried out over 25 performances. They carried out several dance workshops and also visited many classrooms to share their stories and the work of Compas. We look forward to our next tour in the Fall of 2019!
