Maria Gauci, a Maltese dancer with Down Syndrome, has made her debut at a dance film festival in Mexico.
A video of her collaborative dance, Meet Me, with dancer Kostas Papamatthaiakis, was screened at the renowned FIDanzCa – Festival Internacional de Danza de Calle, a dance film festival held in Mexico, earlier this week.
Maria and her partner are dancing to an original composition by Red Electrick’s Monsigneur, and the melody is just as captivating as the dance itself.
Malta was one of the five countries that had their entries shown throughout the festival. Other countries included Mexico, Canada, France and Spain.
The video itself was launched last January, thanks to Maria being awarded funding by Ativisti 2018.
A perfect example of how hard work pays off.
A huge well done to Maria and her team for this fantastic achievement.
