Chapala dance company gathers steam

The birth of lakeside’s first regional dance company is on the horizon following an open audition for prospective artists held on Friday, August 2 at the Auditorio de la Ribera. The new group is expected to be ready for a public debut by mid-November in the performance of a novel dance program.

The 31 candidates appearing at the casting call for the Compañia Regional de Danza de Chapala were put through their paces in a full hour of warm up exercises and routines of basic folk dance steps.  The company’s co-director Luis Guzman Zamora kept a keen eye fixed on each dancer’s skills and natural aptitude, assisted in the evaluation by Chapala culture office director Emmanuel Medeles and alderwoman Luz Mendoza who chairs the city council culture commission.
