Amazing talent shines in PROGRAM2 Ballet with complex movements of modern industrial dance. The choreography is refreshing, intricate and meshes with overlapping sounds of industry and music.

Other vibrant Latin dances such as the tango, and the samba in addition to traditional folkloric routines from Mexico, Panama and Chile steeped in culture and history were performed.
