I am excited to be in Lima making preparations for a George Washington University Peru Study Abroad Program that I will running. Students will study in DC in May and travel to Peru in June.
I visited Gina the director of the National School of Ballet today. She has a wonderful spirit. I watched a rehearsal of a Chinese Peruvian choreographer who was setting a work about Chinese immigrants to Peru in the 1870's. It was wonderful to speak to her about shared ideas of immigration and the Asian diaspora throughout the Americas. I will be back to teach and set a work at the National school in May/June.
More soon! Dana
