Dzul Dance and Mexico The Campeche Youth Initiative is a project of Dzul Dance in collaboration with the Government of the State of Campeche, Mexican Cultural institute of New York and the Campeche Tourism Board. These organizations are committed to providing youth with opportunities to experience artistic creation, the creative process and performance in order to enhance their individual development and stimulate their artistic potential. This program has enabled young dancers from Mexico to travel, perform and study in New York and has created opportunities for them as professional dancers in Mexico. In October 2008 the Campeche Youth Initiative project was accepted to be part of the Performing the World Conference in NYC, an event that brings together artists, activists, community organizers, researchers, youth workers, psychologists and educators from 27 different countries. The annual conference is sponsored by the All Stars Project and the Eastside Institute for Psychotherapy. The conference offers numerous performances, lectures, films, workshops and networking opportunities. Thirteen young adults from Campeche traveled to New York City to perform alongside Dzul Dancers for two weeks.
