La Cambalacha dedicates itself to supporting and facilitating artistic sensitization, learning, exchange, formation and production with the children and youth of rural communities. We are validating and practicing art as a life alternative and professional option.
At La Cambalacha everyone is encouraged to experience and benefit from artistic expression as a universal tool for individual and collective development on social, psychological, physiological and spiritual levels.
La Cambalacha was founded in 2002 by Gabriela Cordón, a native Guatemalan dancer and choreographer. With the help of hundreds of volunteers from around the world, La Cambalacha has reached thousands of children, and trained several generations of Youth Leaders. Programs are now coordinated by local Youth Leaders who have grown up in the project.
