Grupo América exploded onto the Canadian arts scene 21 years ago. This Vancouver-based dance troupe has been dazzling international audiences with their spectacular Latin Dance show, we have NEW routines from Panama, Puerto Rico, Canada, and Dominican Republic! Grupo América pushes stylistic boundaries by presenting a potpourri of dances, combining "sizzling" modern routines with beautiful traditional numbers. Their multitude of striking costumes sets them apart from any dance company you have ever seen, and you will be treated to a visual explosion of colour and glamour!
Best show that has come to my school in 10 years, the teachers liked it and the children loved it, always hard to please both crowds but this show did both. Renee Shaw, Principal, John Henderson Elementary
