Dance to the People fosters the growth of dance makers by offering opportunities for them to expand their practice through teaching, performance, and collaboration. It invests in artists practices through making space for them to experiment - I have personally witnessed the growth of many artists within the context of DTTP, having seen many artists blossom through the support of DTTP. There are simply not many other organizations around like DTTP - artist run platforms, creating equitable opportunities for professional development and growth in a public context. DTTP invests in people - early career artists need the support DTTP provides.

Siento una profunda admiración por la artista Maira Duarte y su proyecto Dance To The People. En una ciudad tan competitiva y llena de talento, Maira Duarte ha sabido abrir camino y crear una plataforma para la comunidad artística, trabajando no sólo desde la coreografía sino con otras manifestaciones artísticas como el video, performance art y talleres de movimiento, apoyando artistas de diferentes procedencias y culturas. He colaborado con ella en múltiples oportunidades y le considero una creadora talentosa y generosa, comprometida a desafiar las convenciones y representar el nuevo arte Latinoamericano. Dance To The People fortalece comunidades y brinda oportunidades para artistas experimentales. Su visión colaborativa es refrescante y necesaria en momentos de incertidumbre política, como los que vivimos hoy en día.

Its collaborative vision is refreshing and necessary in times of political uncertainty, such as those we live in today.

Dance For the People is an inspiring platform that creates opporunitiy to experiment, find & create community and do it in a way that has ease in its accessibilty. Maira Duarte is an incredible 'yes...and' creature to behold as she continues to tirelessly find new avenues and opporunities to bring people together through dancing. Whenever I participate in or attend an event through DFTP, I find myself among a vibrant community of thinkers and movers. There is always someone new to meet and a connection to be made
