Fifty years after a group of dancers felt the “need” for Panama to have a professional dance company, the Central American country is celebrating the “golden anniversary” of its National Ballet, a “seed” that has “sprouted” thanks to the ongoing efforts of its members.

That is how the executive director of Panama’s National Ballet, Gloria Barrios, a ballerina with a long and broad artistic career who was a member of that original dance group in 1972, described the situation to EFE.
