A group of female dancers from the Monterrey Institute of Technology will compete with dance companies from all over the world

A group of dancers from the Tec Dance Company, will represent Mexico at the Dumbo Dance Festival in New York, in which various professional dance companies from around the world will be participating.

In a statement, the private educational institution claimed that the students of the Monterrey campus will be the only Mexican women to participate at the festival, which will be held from 11 to 14 October.

Marcela Salazar, national coordinator of Art and Culture Promotion at the Monterrey Institute of Technology (TEC), reported that the Mexican women had competed in an audition against hundreds of professional companies around the world.

"This is the first year we applied and the audition process to participate was through a video, which was evaluated by festival directors along with other distinguished people within the dance media," she said.

At the end of the event, she said, a company will be chosen to participate in a festival in South Korea and talent hunters are also expected to attend the event.

"The Dumbo Dance Festival is not a competition, but they do choose a company to participate in a festival in South Korea. In addition to that opportunity, Tec students will be able to meet other professional companies," she said.

She mentioned that the team from Mexico would perform two choreographies entitled "Fragility" and "Corpo do som," assembled by professors Jaime Sierra and Rolando Ramírez.

"We seek to express the complexity of being a woman. Society wants to paint women as feminine and sweet creatures, which we are, but at the same time, we are intelligent, strong, courageous, and intuitive," she said.
