Salsa Toronto Dance PanAm Games Opening Ceremony 2015 Pan Am Games Latin Energy Salsa Show
Salsa Toronto Dance PanAm games opening ceremony. From Dreams to Reality was the theme of this years’ PAN AM GAMES OPENING CEREMONY created by Cirque du Soleil.
Words cannot explain the feeling of performing at such a prestigious event as the 2015 TORONTO PAN AM GAMES! The Rogers Center Sky Dome was sold out and the energy from the audience, the Cirque de Soleil performers and our group of amazing “Pow Wow Dancers” including our Latin Energy SALSA team was unforgettable!
When one of the choreographers from Cirque first contacted Latin Energy with the idea of the show, we were honored to be asked to be part of such a prestigious event. We had 5 months to learn the choreography and rehearse with 20 other amazing groups from different countries and styles of dance. All united for the same cause; dancing our different choreography to the same song.
After 20 weeks of practice, it was a show time! Words cannot describe the adrenaline rush we left as we waited behind the curtains of the Rogers Centre. When entering the stadium, all we could see was the thousands of cameras flashing and we embraced the tremendous feeling of accomplishment and gratitude.
As we danced on that stage among many talented dancers and witnessed the torch coming down into the stage and then into the audience, we kept thinking, is this for real? Dreams come reality was the theme of the show and it was true for us performing on that stage and at the PAN AM GAMES Opening Ceremony.
