About 
Our
Company

The Compañía Danza Colombia Internacional is a cultural management entity that works for the dissemination and projection of the performing arts. It was born on September 26, 2006 from the idea of its director and founder Gloria Paola Beltrán Granados to form a company that will carry art in its heart, in its training processes and as a life project, in order to promote dialogues intercultural anywhere in the world.

 ​

In compliance with our mission, we believe in artistic education as a tool for building a better society, we see in art a path of transformation and personal growth and in dance an alternative way of life. In 2007, the project for low-income children and young people called "Scholarships for life" was opened, offering training in: classical ballet, national and international folklore, and plastic arts. The first beneficiaries of this program were 50 children from Soacha, La Candelaria and Ciudad Bolívar. For 2014 this is linked to the TALENTO KIDS DCI training program, which offers continuous training to boys, girls and young people between the ages of 4 and 14 in salsa, street dance, plastic arts, folklore and ballet; and the DCI Company, which has three levels of training (basic, projection and elite), benefits young people and adults between 15 and 30 years old in folklore, theater, ballet, jazz, street dance, Latin rhythms. In addition to this, we offer classes open to children and adults interested in learning about dance and doing physical activity.
