A group of people from different nationalities, religions and ethnic origins shares the same situation with a positive attitude and is hopeful for the future. After having experienced and overcome several hardships, they set up enclaves where to live their social exclusion positively and ultimately reach freedom.

The Sociocultural Dance Association Gerard Collins (awarded by Teatres de la Generalitat) aims to promote, spread, and disseminate dance as a professional, educational, entertaining, cultural and artistic discipline. Supported by our Association, the Jove Companyia is integrated by young people. They have passed different auditions to become members of the company after completing their intermediate or higher studies in the diverse specialities of dance.
