It is brought to us by Victoria Vasquez, long time dancer that discovered ATS® and FCBD® about eight years ago on a VHS tape.
Since then she has been learning and teaching others.
Victoria has performed ATS® with her troupe Banjara from north to south of this long country known as Chile. Several of her students now run schools of their own, the first official being Banjara Valdivia run by her student Fabiola, aka Banjara Valdivia.
I’m not too certain, but I think there are plans to open more schools of ATS® in Chile, and even though it’s not official, Victoria works with students in far off locations like the magical island of Chiloe, the end of the world like Puerto Natales and Punta Arenas. I’d like to lay my personal claim on the arts epicenter of Valparaiso, Chile – I’ve absolutely fallen in love with this city and perhaps that’s where my post-trip new home should be…
Regardless Chile is rich in the dance of ATS®.
Even at 10 minute rest stop in Antofagasta, Chile I found ATS® dancers, or rather they found me.
Sweet enough to help me break up my bus ride, Ioconda and her lovely ladies were waiting to share their ATS® enthusiasm.
This was the view waiting for me from my window when we pulled up, cute!
