It’s the first Afro-Contemporary Dance Company of Colombia and is the pilot project of the Danfroc Cultural Corporation. Created on January 20, 2017 by Teófilo Mercado Carriazo. With the purpose of contributing to the formation of children from the Olaya Herrera neighborhood of Cartagena and positively impacting their community.
It was one of the most enjoying experiences I’ve ever had while making photography. To be around such beautiful young kids and feel pumped by their energy, it’s something that boost you up to keep on doing what you love to do. Here you’ll have a teasing of what it was their photo session in Cartagena, Colombia.
TEÓFILO MERCADO is a dancer, researcher and choreographer with over 25 years of experience in the world of dance focused on afro, folkloric and contemporary genres, who has turned to work with children with the purpose of positively impacting their community.
