Madrid dance troop Danza Down enchants audiences with classical ballet, traditional Spanish dance and musical theatre performances. What makes this dance troop special is that all of the dancers in the troop have Down Syndrome.
Under the nurturing and patient tutelage of Director Elias Lafuente, children and adults with Down Syndrome blossom, gain confidence and develop a love of music and dance.
