Danza en Comunidad is an artistic and outreach project included in Auditorio de Tenerife’s Education and Social Department under the Tenerife Danza scheme, although they carry out their activity out of the building too. The project aims to create different options to make dance available to all kinds of people, groups or associations that need to work using professional tools. The main and ultimate goal of Danza en Comunidad is to make up a community that provides mediation and resources for dance and movement.
