Unlike other companies, Fabián and his team carry out many of the tasks by heart. “Everything is own investment. My mother makes the costumes, and my father makes the logistics..

They left their jobs, we practiced and they came back in. In addition to the room where I teach, I also We rehearsed in the patio of my parents’ house. We lived the entire process with a lot of emotion,” highlights the group’s creator.

“They called me in January, it was five months of work. I’m always trying to perfect everything. Total we are on for a minute and a half without turning off. The first time I did it was because I had a feeling that when I danced malambo my feet were on fire, so I said ‘why don’t we make it literal’. That meant I had to go to the hospital many times, then I perfected it with materials, until I managed to do it without hurting myself. These tests were between 2016 and 2018, then we premiered it on a television program in Italy, You are worth it (Channel 5). There we also had a golden pass,” explained Fabián.

It is a beautiful privilege to see dancers with this hope and offering them work is a dream that will be fulfilled. Seeing kids trusting my crazy things makes me want to keep trying to change my life.”
