‘Department 21’ will be the corollary of four years of study in the classrooms of the Mazatlán Professional Dance School, a graduation program for a new generation of professional dancers who will stage the representative and symbolic art of contemporary dance.
The suggestive title encompasses three choreographic works that will be presented on July 1st at 8:00 p.m. at the Ángela Peralta Theater.
‘Department 21’ has to do with this generation made up of students who come from different parts of the Republic (Mexican), of course the school is like a kind of condominium, an apartment, it’s like their home, explained dancer and choreographer Victor Ruiz.
The co-director of the EPDM and the Delfos Contemporary Dance company shared that this special night will have two choreographers as guests: Francisco Córdova and Vladimir Rodríguez, who comes from Colombia; each one will present a work although they have already assembled other pieces in collaboration with the EPDM.
“And the piece that they do year after year with me, which is a piece that comes from the class of Creative Pieces that we are working on, is called Piso 14”, he highlighted.
‘Department 21’ is a true program with a diversity and a depth that has rarely been seen here at the school, they (the students) have that breadth, that range where they are creative, but they are also physical, they are emotional, They are risky, they are committed, they are visionaries, and I think that what they are going to see is a super-level staging, says Víctor Ruiz.
Martha Castillo Álvarez, coordinator of the EPDM, shared that at the end of the performance at the Ángela Peralta Theater, the protocol ceremony will take place where the outgoing generation will be discussed and awards will be given to graduates after four years of studies.
The Professional School of Dance of Mazatlán has achieved wide prestige in Latin America.
