Volunteer in Colombia, dance in Cali is part of everyday life and deeply rooted in the local culture. Dance is used as a means to bring community together, also used for educative purposes at schools and youngs clubs. Volunteers with a background or passion in dance are welcome!
VOLUNTEERS WIHT DANCE EXPERIENCE
Volunteer have the opportunity to put their knowledge into practice by creating workshops with the colombians dancers. Local students are eager to learn from the volunteers, and also share their knowledge of local dances. Volunteers should bring their laptop, music and camera.
Please keep in mind that it is difficult for volunteers to work alone without having dance or choreography experience, so some background in these areas is preferred.
VOLUNTEERS WITHOUT DANCE EXPERIENCE
Salsa schools competing in the Feria de Cali have a full year of intense work to prepare the many floats, costumes, music and dances. The schools are born from local favelas (urban slums) and most of the schools take their names from the community they represent. Each school unifies and proudly represents people from that community, and all Caleños (Cali-born colombians) also have their favorite school.
Volunteers help some of the leading salsa schools in the preparation of costumes or decoration of the floats – you don't need any special skills, just a willingness to help.
