Latin Dance Company – Celos
The latest Junior Cervila’s show is called "Jealousy" and is an adaptation of Othello tragedy of W. Shakespere. Mixing Latin rhythms and a perfect combination of lights and projections, the dance is the thread that makes the audience not take his eyes from the stage for a second and exit the theatre in total ecstasy.
